Religious truth: determined based on how you feel...

At least according to Mormonism, that is. Watch this short video and see if you heard what I heard, that you can determine religious truth from falsehood based on feelings. Does this also work for all forms of truth? What if I feel that the moon is made of green cheese?

"There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death." (Proverbs 14:12)

I ordered a free copy of the Book of Mormon from the LDS, and they followed up with a nice phone call. The young lad on the other end of the line, obviously reading his script, recommended I read a certain passage (Moroni 9:3-5) and ask God to confirm these writings as true, and He will. So I asked the obvious next (I though simple) questions: (1)how do I know if it's God's voice or my own?, and (2)what if I do that with any other holy book and get a similar feeling? Then what? He stammered and was thrown off...I certainly didn't intend to freak him out. It was funny as he stumbled through the remainder of his type-written dialogue...so, I let him off the hook easy with a "pebble in his shoe", as Koukl would say.
