Question: Is a Latter-day Saint testimony simply based on "feelings"?

A testimony more than simply "feelings", and requires study and prayer

Latter-day Saints bear "testimony" of the truthfulness of the gospel and of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

  • Is this testimony simply based on "feelings?"
  • Are logic and evidence part of gaining a testimony?

A testimony is more than just spiritual experiences and feelings. Gaining a testimony requires more than having "spiritual experiences and feelings," and it requires more than simply listening to "the correlated narrative" provided by the Church. We are not taught to base our testimony on historical narratives.
