Are We To Accept Religious Opinions Based On "Feelings"?
If one hear something, should they follow it if they feel it is right and reject something that they feel is not right?
Take the following example:
A scholar declares: “The one who smokes and the one who sits with him, both will burn in hell forever.” without any reasoning nor argument behind it. He simply makes a claim.
A person hears this, sees there is no argument behind it and that it is an extreme view but he feels that the scholar might be right?
Therefore should that person accept the scholar based on the feeling alone or should he question it based on intellect regardless? If he finds the scholar’s view to be baseless intellectually then should he discard the view and his feelings (of it being maybe correct) about it as well?
