I believe our life experiences with God carry a tremendous amount of
weight as we express our relationship with God.

However, logical arguments which can be backed up by the Word of God must
carry the critical weight. We must never place Scripture in a
subordinate role under our emotions or feelings.

You cannot trust your feelings. You can trust the Word of God.

If experience clashes with the logical arguments from scripture, I'm
trusting in the word.
