In Eastern (Orthodox) Christianity, it is believed that we come to know God through experience, while in Western Christianity (Roman Catholisism, Protestantism) it is believed that we come to know God through logic. East = Heart, West = Mind...Which one do you agree with and why?

I am glad you shared this today. I'm a christian, so I agree with your point. But how I see it is that each person's relationship towards God, and Jesus, is personal and just like the gospels vary in style, so do people's way to knowing God.
That is right. How the Holy Spirit works with each one is different as everyone is unique in background, life's experience, culture and so on. Means each person relates to God with their own personal way to convey depth of devotion:-)
Excellent points! We are all unique, so why should our approaches to this entity we call God be the same?
