Gefühl als Quelle religiöser Wahrheit

Feeling is especially unfit to serve as the epistemic source of religious truth, for feeling is never a prius (a prior thing) but always a posterius (something which follows later).

Religious feeling is not ultimate but points back to God, who arouses that feeling and accords a uniquely religious quality to it.
