I firmly have come to believe that when we believe in Jesus we have the truth inside of us and we go by faith. I now realize that I am not to judge other people or condemn them, just like Jesus said. It's very simple, but people complicate it because they want to be selfish.
Anyone's life will completely be set right once they believe. This is fundamental. I firmly believe by people saying, "Oh, it's just a feeling, and feelings can be wrong" -- is, well, misleading, because there's more than just feelings inside a person. Feelings are part of the heart, and people believe with their hearts. If we keep on saying "It's just feelings", and not doing things, we might become pharisaical. The Pharisees are talked about a lot in the gospels because they are such a problem. Even today, but people need to be able to see it. If you're not careful, it's easy to let organized religion become Pharisaical. I really think people need to stop just saying "It's a feeling" -- and then you might actually miss doing something kind or godly or loving -- because if you say "It's just a feeling", and because of that, you don't do a good thing, what is that? That's bad! Jesus said the Pharisees hindered other people from entering heaven. They appeared to be doing right, but their hearts were wicked. This doctrine of saying "It's just a feeling" may very well be a hindrance to people seeking to enter heaven. When we believe in Jesus we get life, we get hope, we get faith, we get love, we both feel good and are good. Some say that "You might feel unclean but not actually be unclean." But the truth is, if you feel unclean, it's because there is uncleanness in you. When you believe, you are cleansed. The rest will follow as you grow in faith. This is why faith is so fundamental -- because it's the starting point of becoming a Christian.
