Episode 18: Can Feelings Ever Triumph Over the Truth?

Follow you heart! Or not. What do we do when we can’t reconcile our feelings with the Truth of God’s Word? Today is all about the feels with an easy to remember illustration to keep us on the right track.

Questions To Ask Ourselves

Do you believe our hearts are prone to wander? 

Jeremiah 17:9 "The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?
Proverbs 16:25 “There is a way that appears to be right but in the end it lead to death?”
Do we believe we will never know the depth of our sinfulness? 
Proverbs 19:12-13 Who can discern his errors?
    Declare me innocent from hidden faults.
13 Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins;
    let them not have dominion over me!
Then I shall be blameless,
    and innocent of great transgression.

Do you believe that God’s Word is the standard of Truth? J

John 17:17 Sanctify them by your truth, your word is truth
Psalm 119:160 The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.
Proverbs 19:7-8
The law of the Lord is perfect,[c]
    reviving the soul;
the testimony of the Lord is sure,
    making wise the simple;
8 the precepts of the Lord are right,
    rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is pure,
    enlightening the eyes;

Do you believe Sola Scriptura?

Sola Scriptura means that God’s declaration in Scripture is that it and it alone, is this final authority in all matters of faith and morals.
