Evidentialism should not be confused with a Spock-like philosophy that feelings and emotions are to be scorned and avoided. Rather, our personal relationship with Jesus Christ should be based on facts and evidence. We can trust Jesus because we have reason to do so. This gives us the freedom to commit ourselves emotionally and psychologically to God. The problem arises when one bases one’s beliefs upon one’s emotions. That ordering leaves one vulnerable to emotional and other arational appeals from other religions. It also leaves one vulnerable to losing one’s faith when the emotions are no longer there. Get it in the right order, and then connect the prose and the passion. That’s what Christianity is all about. —Lydia McGrew (from, What evidentialism is not)
