Emotion and Truth

Music and emotions are strongly tied together. No one questions that, but why is that true? Why has God linked auditory sensory with our emotive response? Emotion rooted in truth can be life-changing. Memories are heightened, decisions are sured. And yet, the danger is always lurking that the object of our worship will lose out to the means. To put it another way; worshipping worship itself.

An example: God can feel far away. This is spiritually and physically impossible as He is omnipresent. And so the clashing of truth and feeling. BUT, there may be some truth in the fact that we are not living in the Spirit and so have squelched His desire to move in our lives.

More on this later...
