Sola feels

Babylon bee is like the onion but for Christians… but as we know the onion and related satirical websites hit on important truths on occasion. Sadly, those occasions are increasing. This time bringing us Sola Feels.

PORTLAND, OR—An influential group of the nation’s top progressive evangelical authors, speakers, and bloggers met Tuesday evening to officially affirm their recently drafted doctrine of “Sola Feels,” sources confirmed.

The new doctrine, translated “By Feels Alone,” formally outlines one of the essentials of modern-day progressive evangelicalism—that one’s feelings are the supreme authority in all matters of theology and practice.

An alleged draft of the creed, which was leaked to the press Wednesday morning, reads as follows:

“The whole counsel of God, concerning all things necessary for his own glory, man’s salvation, faith, and life, is either expressly set down in our feels, or by good and necessary consequence may be deduced from our feels: unto which nothing at any time is to be added, whether by the Scriptures, church history, or theologians.”

“Quite simply, ‘Sola Feels’ means that all spiritual truths only become true once they’re filtered through and accepted by our feels—all the feels,” popular author and speaker Jane Hansen told reporters after the meeting. “Thus, things that make us feel bad, those are wrong. The things that give us all the happy feels, those are true, right, and good.”

“At least, that’s how we feel at the moment, I feel,” she noted.

You have to wonder, though, if they actually reading what we’re writing on blogs around these parts. I wouldn’t be surprised.

    That could have been written by Karl Barth, in fact substitute the word “experience” and it might just be plagiarism. In this age of post-modern subjectivism , God and truth are experienced not know by revelation, heart not mind is what makes one a “christian”, self discovery trumps Bible study, nice beats truth because if feels better than conflict and objective truth and normative ethics must give way to feelings as a guide.

    In Plato’s allegory of the charioteer, the chariot is completely guided by the passions and the intellect has fallen out of the chariot a few miles back. But hey, without the weight and control of the intellect the emotions can run even faster and with more abandon.

    I feel that you’re not putting enough effort into it!

  8. Quixote, please post nothing from those mockers and scoffers. It pains me every time I hear a Christian reference the authors of that accursed song.
