What do Protestants experience when they describe a “personal relationship with God”?
#6
Warm and fuzzies.  Self-reassurance that no matter what they do, they will go to heaven as long as they say that Jesus is their personal Lord and Savior. 
.
See the river baptism scene from the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Don't get me wrong, most really want to love Jesus, really want to follow Jesus, really want to go to heaven.  But for most I ever met, it is emotional self-reassurance (and group reassurance since they, like most people, spend their time with others who think alike).  Some follow thru with actions - think Franklin Graham who does a lot of charity work, even tho that charity work is a form of evangelism.
