Even the experts are not sure what causes us to experience emotions. Both social science and neurobiology have tried, to no avail, to explain the origin of emotions. For Christians, emotions can be troubling, frustrating, untrustworthy and unsettling. They can also can control us, consume and even paralyze us. Some emotions seem deeply spiritual; other emotions feel downright sinful. God created us to experience emotions, the challenge comes in trying to recognize them, not stuff, ignore or explode and then respond in a way that is both honest and healthy.
