Why Did God Make Emotions? A Mega-Post

J.S. Park: Hospital Chaplain, Skeptical Christian

pineapplebitsasked:

Hi! What role do my emotions have in my [spiritual] life? I know my emotions don’t change who God is to me, or my responsibilities in living out my life for Him. However, when it comes to making decisions and daily living, it seems that emotions often get cast aside as a non-factor. God has made us to be emotional beings, yet how do we embrace our emotions without being naive or blinded by our feelings?

This is a great question and your balanced approach is very good.  Let’s start from the ground-up and see why God gave us these pesky colorful shades of feeling, then see if we can draw some left-right boundaries. This is sort of a mega-post, so please feel free to skip around.
