Emotion is the filter through which we experience the world. Sometimes that filter sharpens, like the lens of a microscope. Other times it obscures, like looking in a tarnished mirror. Emotions are not hindrances to logical and objective assessments of the world; emotions are the raw materials upon which logic operates to construct a portrait of the world around.
Faith is the cognitive rut that determines the emotional filter through which we experience the world at a particular moment in time. Words are the means by which we attempt to convey the shape of our faith. Truth and falsity do not reside in words, but in the correspondence between our emotional experience and the relationship that God is and for which God created us.
