    Hi, Whitehorse, good to meet you again. May the Lord continue leading and guiding. And yes, our God loves us with a jealous love, and He wants to have our attention ... because He wants the very best for us. HIMSELF. He, the source of all good, and His blessed Son, our Saviour, we are called to have Him as our own life. How much yet to learn of His love and of His ways! How warm and infinite His love, and how cold our hearts so many times. ...

    in Him,

    doulos

    I've had the same problems and struggle with it. At one point i purposely thought about these horrible thoughts with Jesus because i figured if i was going to think about bad thoughts anyway its better to think about bad thoughts with Jesus than it is to think about bad thoughts with Satan. So i continued masturbating and i thought about these bad thoughts with Jesus becasue it made me feel better inside to think about Jesus than Satan...but now i feel horrible and i hate what i have done and all i ask is forgivness from the lord. I'm scared i have committed an unpardonable sin. I'm pretty sure the lord as forgiven me...but it would help to get some replies from some people telling me that the lord as really forgiven me.

    The unpardonable sin is blaspheming the Holy Spirit, apparently by verbally attributing works of God to Satan. You haven't done that. Have you received Jesus as your Lord and Savior? Do you trust in Him for forgiveness? If so, then just turn away from it, renounce it and He will forgive you.

    I have seen worse thing in my head. :)sigh: a thought of putting jeasus on the cross using an air compressed nailgun :( )

    I think that Jesus is trying to tell you something, or prepair you for something that is to happen. indeed that is strange.

    you should try staying still and quite, and listen for god. god will wait forever until your still and quite to tell you something. if you just hang in there, and listen and pray. I know I am praying for you.

    Uh, I doubt this very much.

    People, could you get a grip please? The OP has a sickness, not a problem w/ sin in the instance he described. He has scrupulosity (religious OCD). This is a condition that requires much tactful and gentle care from a qualified professional (preferably a Christian one). I have the condition, too, and can't stand seeing people like myself being branded as the worst sinners possible.

    This rant doesn't apply to everyone here, of course, just some of you.

    YES, YOU CAN BE FORGIVEN. Know that before anything else....just think......when those pictures come into your mind.....as God is dying on the cross....he thought of you and knew you would do that....he knew it every time...and he was sad.....but then.....every drop of blood fell on you....and he declared that it was finished....you are clean when he died, today and tomorrow...forever....and ever. Those thoughts come from Satan.....he brings them about.....but you need to pray that they stop. God can make them stop because he can do anything....and that also means that he can forgive you for whatever you no matter how bad it seems.

    atleast you are recognizing it as what it is, sin, atleast you are reaching out for help, the bad thing to do would to be to just do nothing about it, i dont know how i can help you, other than listening to you and praying for you, so until i think of a way to help ill be praying for you.

    Thank you for praying for me.

    It would make me the happiest in the world just to know all this weird and terrible sin, i have explained in the post above, can be forgiven.

    So if someone could reply and just tell me that if i repent all this sin i will be forgiven. It helps me to be reminded of gods grace and faith.:crossrc:

    Benmill, of course you can be forgiven. Lots of times, with certain sin, it takes awhile to get away from it I think, and while you are struggling to get away from it, falling back into it some is not uncommon, and God knew you were going to, and the most important thing is He knows your sorry and knows your struggling, so He most certainly does forgive you. It would be another thing if you say didnt care or something, but it is clear you do. Just everytime you fall, ask for forgiveness and say your sorry, and move on.

    Im just feeling a little guilty still.

    I think it is because i just feel bad about the sin i have commited.

    Just the vivid images that i thought of when i was masturbating still hurt my heart when i think about them. Images such as my hand was jesus mouth when i was masturbating or the hole in his side when he was pierced on the cross. Or even thougths that my hand was something else and bad thoughts about satan.

    It makes me feel better i have posted this and i would appreicaite if someone could post something that would make me feel a little better and not so guilty.

    It does sound to me like this is obsessive compulsive disorder... many people have a wrong idea about the word 'obsession'... being obsessed with something does not mean you like that thing... but it means that thing persists in your mind... whether you like it, or not!

    Some people are obsessed with contamination/filth... some people are obsessed with order... some obsessed with violence... persons obsessed with brutal violences for example.... they have images of brutal violence in their head all the time... they see themself hurting their loved once... they have no control over their thoughts and because of it they think they are evil... they isolate because they are afraid they will act out and as a result they become amongst some of the most gentle people in the world...

    and just like in their case... I don't think you are sinning because you have these thoughts... you do not do it on purpose... it's a bit like hiccups... you cannot control hiccups and you can't tell someone to stop hiccuping...

    OCD is a result of chemical imbalaces... (somwhat like diabetes)... and can be treated with medication

    We are all born with corrupt minds, thats whay jesus died for us, we all have sinfull thoughts sometimes we are not aware of them, the fact is you know your thoughs are wrong, and you hate them,you are repenting so jesus has fogivin you and will continue to do so, satan know how to play on our weakness and will torments us with it, thats what is happening here, please when you have these thoughts, tell satan to get lost, and tell jesus your sorry, he know you dont really mean it ,, he know you are being tormented, satan will do anything to put a barrier with you and jesus, please stop worring about it, because worring about it is giving satan exacly what he wants.
