Feelings - Truth in Love Ministry

Dictionary of Mormonese


Subjective feelings, rather than objective facts, are what Mormons rely on. They believe revelation, knowledge, guidance, and the answers to prayer all come through a person’s feelings. “The Holy Ghost also helps us remember things we once learned but have forgotten… Other ways the Holy Ghost helps us solve problems are by revealing answers to us directly in a still, small voice. … (If we receive the answer to our prayers from someone else, the Holy Ghost will give us the feeling that it is correct.) … Such promptings may simply be a feeling that we ought to spend more time with someone in our family or do something special for him. … He tells us that if the decision we make is right, we will receive a feeling of peace in our hearts and in our minds” (Duties and Blessings of the Priesthood, Part B, p. 106).
