    My understanding is that if you are sincere in your repentance as a sinner and acknowledge Christ as your saviour and redeemer who rose from the dead you’ll be fine.

    Romans 10:9 - That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved

    That’s pretty water tight.

    Everybody makes mis-steps along the way, the question is whether you get back on the path.

    Lily - God knows what's in your heart . He understands you have problems.

    Just say the Jesus Prayer and do not panic. Be at peace - this is not totally under your control

    prayers for you :crosseo:

    well, we would all go to hell if Jesus hadn't died for us.
    Jesus loves you so much,
    Read Ephesians... in fact a friend told me to read it, substituting myself as in verse 3,4
    Redemption in Christ
    3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed you with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

    4 just as He chose you in Him before the foundation of the world, that you should be holy and without blame before Him in love,

    On the other hand, intrusive thoughts associated with OCD can be treated with SSRI medication (like sertraline).

    Go to your GP (family doctor) and have a conversation about medication and cognitive behavioural therapy.

    thank you everyone for posting back to me
    am on medication at the moment but its not helping at all my psych says i have to try and use mindfulness and the DBT/CBT ( i cant remember what one i had ) i had with a psychotherapist who only sees me for things like when i had impulsive thoughts that i was going to hurt people or hurt my nieces little ones i sometimes feel like i want to but i never do that i know i should get other therapy but they will not give me more as its NHS i normally see my pastor about things like this but he on holiday for 10 days i need to try and deal with this while he is gone am not so good at mindfulness i try but i find it hard to deal with my OCD
    thanks you all for your prayers

    Although I have not been diagnosed with OCD, to an extent I have the symptoms (and a tendency towards depression) and it can make life very difficult. Disorders though can be managed and used in productive ways or just the opposite. I pray the Lord will use yours for His glory, and I pray judgmental people will leave you alone. God bless.

    Greetings. I do not believe in hell. I do not believe Jesus sends anyone to hell. Jesus will protect you and guide you. He loves you very much.

    If you are in the UK you can go to your nearest IAPT service and ask for an assessment.

    If you say you have OCD symptoms they will give you a questionnaire called an OCI.

    If you score sufficiently high you would be put forwards for high intensity CBT (up to twenty one hour sessions) as per the NICE guidelines for treating OCD in primary care.

    I’m a manager/therapist at an IAPT service in Liverpool so I know the system you can use.

    Is that helpful?

    Christians are constantly exposed to sinful things. It is the trend of your life, living in sin or not living in sin. Everyone stumbles here and there. If you feel convicted or do something you know to be contrary to scripture then repent with a sincere heart, and you are forgiven. Give it to the Lord and don't take it back. Accept the forgiveness and move on in the Lord.

    Proverbs 12
    25Worry weighs a person down;

    God Bless.

    Just visiting a pagan forum is not going to give you a one-way ticket to hell. It isn't wise, but don't let the fact you have gone there drive you to despair for your soul.

    Try feeding your OCD impulses something positive like eastern orthodox chanting on youtube. Hopefully you will then get drawn into that and the pagan forums will fade from memory.
