Faith Not Feeling

Faith not Feeling

 

“Faith means trusting in God’s love and making ourselves available for its action despite what we may feel. Faith cannot be based on feelings. Nor should its criterion of authenticity be absence of struggle…By shifting the basis for confidence from human feelings and inner harmony to hard faith facts about God and behaviour, the author is boycotting a common religious trend, then and now, to make inner human experience the criteria of spirituality.”

William Loader (Johanine Epistles, pp 43-44)
