Feelings or Facts


"Our feelings do not affect God's facts. "

Cool quote. Our Pastor took issue with the well known quote:

"God said it. I beieve it. That settles it"

Our Pastor said it should say:

"God said it. That settles it" as it makes no difference to the truth of God whether we believe it or not. We should believe it of course, but our belief or unbelief has no bearing on the truth of what God said.

Great quote.


That is a very good and true quote. I would be lost some mornings but I trust in God's facts and not my feeling. Feeling just don't count if they go against God's facts. Thank you Deby. Loved it. connie from Texas
