“My feelings are not God. God is God.
My feelings do not define truth.
God’s word defines truth.
My feelings are echoes and responses to
what my mind perceives.
And sometimes – many times – my feelings
are out of sync with the truth.
When that happens – and it happens
every day in some measure – I try not to bend
the truth to justify my imperfect feelings, but
rather, I plead with God: Purify my perceptions
of your truth and transform my feelings so that
they are in sync with the truth.”
-John Piper, Finally Alive

Amen. Thanks for sharing. These truths should serve to protect against many heresies and false philosophies. If we keep our minds renewed with biblical fortification, we will not be overcome by sentiment.
