We Can't Trust Our Feelings
According to the Bible, we cannot trust our feelings to know whether or not we are saved. Also, consider the apostle Paul. He lived before God in all good conscience but admits he did it ignorantly in unbelief. Just because his conscience did not tell him he was wrong in persecuting Christians does not mean that he was right with God while doing so.
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.

1 Timothy 1:12-14 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry, although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.
Acts 23:1 Then Paul, looking earnestly at the council, said, "Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day."
James 2:24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.
Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
1 John 5:13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
