Extreme negative emotions are very often a sign of imbalance, immaturity, and deception.
Men are designed with the highest level of intellect which is our highest form of communication. When a person chooses emotions as the highest form of communication they are likely demonstrating immaturity at the least and likely deception.
The reason is as stated above, and also because emotions are easily influenced by things like, hunger, alcohol, medication, stress, etc.
Judas hang himself in response to remorse and regret. Peter was very sad for the same reason , but soon recovered and corrected his behavior. Judas’s emotional response was extreme and destructive. Peter allowed himself to peacefully be restored, John 21.
OUR HEART FELT EMOTIONS ARE UNTRUSTWORTHY. (wise parents and teachers know this and are not deceived by clever children). What we KNOW and BELIEVE should be based on TRUTH not excessive, misleading, emotions:
“My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.–1 John 3:18-20 KJVWhy art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
Psalms 42:5 KJVFor God hath not given us the SPIRIT OF FEAR; but of power, and of love, and of a SOUND MIND.–2 Timothy 1:7 KJV
