Religion based on mere feeling…

A religion based on mere feeling is the vaguest, most unreliable, most unstable of all things. A strong, stable, religious life can be built upon no other ground than that of intelligent conviction…. Christianity, therefore, addresses itself to the intelligence as well as to the heart.

— James Orr, quoted in The Word of God and The Mind of Man by Ronald Nash, p. 48
