Many Christians have likely experienced emotionalism – the moments at various worship services and events when excessive focus is placed on a person’s emotions. Often, you will see it in places where “decisions” or “worship experiences” are elevated above proper worship of God or, quite frankly, above the gospel. In its ugliest forms, the leader attempts to manipulate the congregation’s emotions to meet whatever their end goal is. and emotional atmospheres are dubbed “a move of the Holy Spirit.”
Let me continue to be frank – it is blasphemous to call something that is not the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit does not “flood the atmosphere” in fuzzy feeling sort of way. The Holy Spirit indwells believers. But that is beside the point.
