Feeling is the New Seeing

One of the things Pastors will hear on occasion is that someone doesn't "Feel" something - that this or that isn't making someone "feel" something. We live in a day an age where feelings and emotions are almost equated to faith.

"Now, faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen" Hebrews 11:1

Feeling is the new seeing. The biggest obstacle to faith in the past seemed to be the demand for physical evidence - give me something to see! Give me some "proof" or evidence. Now that idea of evidence has moved towards feelings - excitement, what have you.

Our forefathers craved relics - physical proofs of the faith. Today, let's get pumped up on praise songs, for those feelings will be the proof of faith.
