What is Experiential Religion?

Jonathan Edwards:

“A gracious experience arises from operations and influences which are spiritual, from an inward principle which is divine, a communication of God, a participation of the divine nature [2 Pet. 1:4]: Christ living in the heart, the Holy Spirit dwelling there in union with the faculties of the soul as an internal principle, exerting his own proper nature in the exercise of those faculties.”​

Thus all of that which we go through in life in its various seasons, circumstances and experiences as we live before the Face of God, becomes sanctified and beneficial to our faith and precious to the saint.

Experiential Religion deeply values the experiential aspect of the Scriptures and the Christian faith.​

Here is a field of jewels from Church history on experiential religion, on one page:
