Heart Religion

. . . so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith . . .
- Ephesians 4:17a

According to the Bible, religion is not a form of feeling to the exclusion of the intellect, nor a form of knowledge to the exclusion of the feelings. Christ dwells in the heart, in the comprehensive sense of the word. He is the source of spiritual life to the whole soul - of spiritual knowledge as well as of spiritual affections.

- Charles Hodge from his commentary on Ephesians
