Too many leaders in the church begin their services with the question “How do you you feel, today?”. Honestly, what kind of question is that? If I relied on how I “feel”, I would question whether I was saved at all! Emotions and feelings are fickle at best and are not always based in reality. If an emotional response is not rooted in an objective truth, it cannot be trusted as reality.
Foundational truth at it's core must be objective in order to be standardized. That is where the Word Of God comes in. As the story of our God revealing Himself in history and ultimately through His Son, Jesus Christ, the Bible gives us a foundation upon which we can KNOW what is true and what is not.
This is a great clip from Alistair Begg on what we should ultimately base our Christian beliefs upon.

Let your knowledge of the truth lead your emotions. Not the other way around!
