Today’s Humor – “Sola Feels”

If you’ve never read the Babylon Bee, you really need to do so. The content is as hilarious as it is on target. In today’s example, they take aim at the progressive evangelical’s emphasis on existential feelings as opposed to the guidance of God’s law as illuminated by the Holy Spirit.

They posit that the progressive’s core doctrine is “Sola Feels”, which translates to “By Feels Alone”. In their words:

“Quite simply, ‘Sola Feels’ means that all spiritual truths only become true once they’re filtered through and accepted by our feels—all the feels,” popular author and speaker Jane Hansen told reporters after the meeting. “Thus, things that make us feel bad, those are wrong. The things that give us all the happy feels, those are true, right, and good.”

This, of course, plays off of the Reformation doctrine of “Sola Scriptura,” (although they play off of “Sola Fide” for the sound) where Scripture illuminated to us by the Holy Spirit, is the only rule for faith and practice. The Babylon Bee captured the contrast between orthodox Reformed theology and the mushy progressives very well. Laughed really hard reading this article.
