Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints claim to have received revelation from God by the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is God's word like the Bible, that God calls prophets today, and that the LDS church is the only 100% true church on the Earth. Instead of respectfully disagreeing with us, some Evangelical Christians claim that the Bible does not teach or endorse the LDS testimony. Many Evangelical Christians claim that the Holy Ghost does not operated through the mechanism of what they consider subjective feelings but pure logic only. Therefore, it seems as though they believe that God operates though the mind over the heart. However, as I look through the Bible, I see something different taught. According to the Bible, there is no dichotomy. God who created the mind and the heart of man, can change, purify and operate through both.
Mark 12: 30 30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. (Heb. 8: 10, 1 Chr. 28: 9, Ps. 119: 2 2)
James 4: 8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
Ezek. 36: 26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
In fact there are some scriptures which say that the feelings of the heart can surpass logic. Isn't peace, love, faith, and a good or clear conscience something that is felt?
Philip. 4: 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Acts 17: 27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
John 12: 40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
Matt. 14: 14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.
Matt. 20: 34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received bsight, and they followed him.
Mark 1: 41 And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.
1 Pet. 3: 8 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
Philip. 2: 1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
