We are called out of lostness into joy. For example, Romans 1:6. Paul is writing to... Continue Reading →

Are your feelings guiding your faith?

As I look around today, reading and listening to evangelical voices, I find many Christians who believe faith is something mystical that pits feelings against using our brains. Are your feelings guiding your faith as a determiner of truth?
