An interesting comment about “feeling”-- 

“Ye are swift to do iniquity but slow to remember the Lord your God. Ye 
have seen an angel, and he spake unto you; yea, ye have heard his voice 
from time to time; and he hath spoken unto you in a still small voice, 
but ye were *past feeling*, that ye could not *feel* his words; 
wherefore, he has spoken unto you like unto the voice of thunder, which 
did cause the earth to shake as if it were to divide asunder.”  (1 Nephi 

True religion is a feeling. It is common in anti-Mormon literature for 
attacks to be made on prayer and on trusting one's feelings as sources 
for obtaining truth. In the realm of spiritual understanding both are 
fundamental. Truth is felt. Falsehood is often clothed in erudite and 
sophisticated arguments. One does not have to be able to refute the 
argument to know that it is false. Truth feels good; falsehood does not.

Christ spoke of the inability of the wicked to "understand with their 
heart" (Matthew 13:15), while the righteous "understood in their hearts" 
things too marvelous to utter (3 Nephi 19:33-34). Describing the spirit 
of revelation for Joseph Smith, the Lord said, "I will tell you in your 
mind and in your heart, by the Holy Ghost, which shall come upon you and 
which shall dwell in your heart" (D&C 8:2). Because of their wickedness, 
such understanding was lost to Nephi's rebellious brothers.
