Gordon H. Clark on Emotions: A Place for Thoughts

I don’t see that this [emotional upheaval] is part of the image of God, I think this is part of original sin.  Dr. Gordon H. Clark

On his blog, A Place for Thoughts, Doug Douma has posted a series of quotes from Dr. Gordon H. Clark on the issue of emotions, God and man as the image of God.  Some of the quotes are from a question and answer session in one of Clark's lectures.  Others are from his books.  Needless to say, it is helpful to have these thoughts from Dr. Clark posted in one place for comparison and contrast.  

I should offer perhaps not a complete definition, but at least an element of the definition. An emotion seems to me to be a sudden upheaval, disturbance in our ordinary calm state of mind. And I don’t see that this is part of the image of God, I think this is part of original sin. – “Questions and Answers,” Audio Recording, Winter Theological Institute, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi, Feb. 2-4, 1976.  [Posted by Doug Douma].
