There is a faulty premise within the LDS faith that “warm fuzzy feelings” (at times referred to as ‘The Light of Christ,’ ‘The Spirit of the Holy Ghost,’ or ‘The Burning Bosom’) and other psychological phenomena experienced when contemplating the church, are the final arbiters of truth in the universe – but only if they match the church’s foregone conclusions.

The candidate for baptism (or a person working on a testimony) is encouraged to not only trust their feelings, but is also encouraged to act on these whispers with higher priority than they would give to facts.
