@SpiritRealmInvestigator Doesn't your recent question proves that we cannot use experience to prove a certain theory of God or an understanding of spiritual gift?

Framing comes from the mind which interprets the bodily feeling which may indeed has some contact with the divine. But the mind itself can have contact with the divine. We combine both mind and bodily sensation into a spiritual experience that we may regard as significant. It's our framing that gives us final interpretation.

I think (excepting some genuine prophetic message, biblical writing providence, or miraculous revelation like St. Paul's Damascus) God deliberately refrains to provide the whole framing, giving us "freedom" (if we want to see it positively) or "ambiguity" (if we want to see it negatively). Reminds me of Eleonore Stump saying that God could have written big letters in the sky but that would be an abuse of power.
But I'm persuaded that God may be genuinely involved through the measurable brain activity and/or immeasurable mind activity. It's just that most of the time a subjective input is necessary, making the experience itself not usable as proof, only sign.
@SpiritRealmInvestigator What do you think? Does this conclusion brings closure to your investigation? I'm glad that no mainstream doctrines privilege a "signature" confirmation experience unlike LDS. Mainstream does value spiritual experience as genuine contact, which can be mediated partly through physical means like the brain, but doesn't teach the experience itself is self-describing, only a means for assurance that God is with you.
