  2. The General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

Has anyone had successful OCD treatment after 100% committing the unforgivable sin?

    I was wondering if anyone has had OCD or anxiety treatment that worked for them for the unforgivable sin.

    I committed this sin and have been trying my best to push away thoughts of suicide. I made another post about this, but I won't go through with that I don't think because I realized today I don't want to cause pain to my family. And as someone else replied if i'm going to hell I should push that out as far as possible. However as I am alive on earth waiting for hell I am seeking some form of treatment to keep from losing my mind while here. It's been two weeks since I realized I committed the sin and I can barely function in the day to day, can't focus in my job, can't eat, can't sleep I keep waking up at 3am every night and believe I am now only filled with demons since I committed this in December and remembered two weeks ago what I did.

    I do know what this sin is and it is verbally attributing Jesus to the evil one. I had intrusive thoughts about this like many others may have, but I took it to the next level and it slipped out VERBALLY while I was drinking and I said it out loud to my sister and her husband. I had knowledge of faith and had accepted Jesus as my savior and I still let it get to that point of continued questioning, which is the epitome of the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. Having light of the knowledge of God in your life and continuing to question it, all the way to the point of questioning if Jesus is the evil one. I fulfilled the sin.

    I am seeking guidance from anyone who has committed the sin and if you have had any successful treatment if you could please advise any help.

    I know this post comes off very self absorbed, but I don't know what else to do at this point

    IMHO you are punishing yourself unduly. It's what you believe NOW that's important, not any sin that you have committed in the past. It seems that you truly recognize Jesus for who He really is: our Lord and Savior. That is what is important, even if you didn't believe that in the past.

    If you think that God loves you less because of a sin that you committed in the past but now realize that it was an error, you are wrong. God forgives you and loves you!

    You do realize that not everyone has the same proneness, or temptation to sin, right? Of course God knows this, and he knows that someone who has an easy life, and has never had to make certain choices and can't be held to the same standard as someone who has been bombarded by temptations and genetic flaws.

    This should be a real eye opener for the self-righteous, and a sigh of relief for people like you and me.

    God is merciful.

    Clinical issues with intrusive thoughts do not send one to hell, break one's relationship with God, nor are cause for suicide.

    Yours is a medical issue. Would God reject the Christian that had a broken back and could not work and provide for his family?

    Then why would God reject YOU for having medical issues that cause your mind to hang on to and even express verbally your intrusive thoughts?

    Everyone has intrusive thoughts - but those with OCD and other ailments - have tendencies to hang on to them and fight them instead of letting them pass and seeking God's mercies about them.

    I KNOW - I have intrusive thoughts!! My anxiety/depression wrestles with them. It used to be worse because I thought God hated me for it. But then - I learned he does not.

    When they come to my mind - I don't fight trying to chase them away. I merely focus on something else, ask God to help me and forgive me even.

    Your salvation is NOT in jeopardy because of intrusive thoughts - NO intrusive thought can do that.

    I suffer from fairly severe OCD. I am healing slowly however. What you're describing is something I've been through. I want to try and reassure you that you have nothing to worry about. Your problem however has nothing to do with the unforgivable sin itself. This is just the form your OCD currently takes.

    Healing from OCD is , in part, about getting behind its manifestations and confronting the reality (of OCD. Your fear of the unforgivable sin is just one way your OCD appears to you. Your OCD is just a neurological pattern - a neurological habit.This neural firing pattern induces a feeling of fear/terror/anxiety, and always clothes itself in a concept - the unforgivable sin, contamination etc You can unlearn the cognitive habit and be free of the OCD.

    As a result, there's no point in anyone going through the theology surrounding the unforgivable sn. Your brain is loading the concept with great weights of fear. When you think of that idea it triggers the neurological pattern and you experience terror. No matter what we say, your brain will continue to load the fear on.


    You will eventually come to the realisation that you are simply afraid of fear itself. You willl come to realise that you are governed and motivated by fear. Eventually, you'll leave this behind and it will be replaced by some other (probably more severe) anxiety. In a little more time you will leave that new fear behind and move onto something else. The things that filled me with mortal dread a decade ago, are totally irrelevant to me now. I'm filled with regret when I contemplate the way that my life has been shaped by this pattern. I understand it, but my brain racks me with doubt...'what if this time it's real/what if you're the exception'. The idea sinks its teeth into my psyche and locks in tight.

    There is a lot of information available online. I've personally found https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU4ycJNahDdtGbANIhcbifQ
    to be exceptional.

    Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will surely help you; I will uphold you with My right hand of righteousness. Isaiah 41:10

    You did not commit the unforgivable sin the unforgivable sin is a choice to refuse the knowledge of the truth and not to put your trust in Jesus if anyone is willing to believe and believes he can be saved it is a choice to remain unbelieving and not to be seeking to know the truth and to be seeking to repent and to believe and put your trust in Jesus and to repent and follow Him

    I'm so sorry you're struggling so badly! It sounds like you could really benefit from some professional help for your OCD as soon as possible. Is there any way you can start going to therapy soon (preferably with an OCD specialist)?

    And, I agree with others on here - you're OK. You're going to be OK. I know it feels terrible, but it feels more terrible than it actually is. I know that's hard to believe, but please trust those of us who have been through similar things, and can now look from the other side and say, "We got through it. We're OK."

    Intrusive thoughts are not real, they are the product of an ill mind. As such do you really think Jesus is going to punish eternally a person whose sickness is his problem.

    Look for in Google for 25 tips for successful treating your ocd

    It says don't argue with, talk to, deny or try to repress intrusive thoughts, but just acknowledge them.
    You have a thought, " Jesus is the devil! " All you do is think ' OK that's right. ' and carry on with what you are doing.
    Worrid about having thought or verbalised these sort of thoughts.

    Praise God for Jesus and for his forgiveness of All your sins.

    Dear Jo M

    Read the following quotes carefully. It will tell you what the unpardonable sin is, and you will see that God has not cut you off because of what you said or thought. The door is still open for you to go to heaven!

    "Sin Against the Holy Ghost—No one need look upon the sin against the Holy Ghost as something mysterious and indefinable. The sin against the Holy Ghost is the sin of persistent refusal to respond to the invitation to repent." RH, June 29, 1897

    "Eyes Closed to Evidence—They [the Pharisees] attributed to satanic agencies the holy power of God, manifested in the works of Christ. Thus the Pharisees sinned against the Holy Ghost. Stubborn, sullen, ironhearted, they determined to close their eyes to all evidence, and thus they committed the unpardonable sin." RH, January 18, 1898

    (This means they truly believed that Jesus was from Satan. Jesus cannot save us if we truly believe in our heart that He is from Satan.)

    "Firm, Determined Resistance of Truth—Christ was not warring against finite men, but against principalities and powers, against spiritual wickedness in high places. He tells His hearers that all manner of sin and blasphemy may be forgiven if done in ignorance. In their great blindness they might speak words of insult and derision against the Son of man, and yet be within the boundary of mercy. But when the power and Spirit of God rested upon His messengers, they were on holy ground. To ignore the Spirit of God, to charge it with being the spirit of the devil, placed them in a position where God had no power to reach their souls.

    To speak against Christ, charging His work to satanic agencies, and attributing the manifestations of the Spirit to fanaticism, is not of itself a damning sin, but the spirit that leads men to make these assertions places them in a position of stubborn resistance, where they cannot see spiritual light....They think they are following sound reason, but they are following another leader. They have placed themselves under the control of a power which in their blindness they are wholly ignorant of. They have resisted the only Spirit that could lead them, enlighten them, save them. They are following in the path of guilt for which there can be no forgiveness, in this life or in the life to come. Not that any degree of guilt would exhaust the mercy of God, but because pride and persistent stubbornness leads them to do despite to the Spirit of God, to occupy a place where no manifestation of the Spirit can convince them of their error. They will not yield their stubborn wills.

    In this our day men have placed themselves where they are wholly unable to fulfill the conditions of repentance and confession: therefore they cannot find mercy and pardon. The sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit does not lie in any sudden word or deed; it is the firm, determined resistance of truth and evidence. Manuscript 30, 1890

    "The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, NOT WILLING THAT ANY should perish but that ALL should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9

    God is waiting for you with open arms. He does not condemn you! If you have asked for forgiveness your sins are taken away from you as FAR AS THE EAST IS FROM THE WEST, INSTANTLY!

    "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

    "As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us." Psalms 103:12

    If only you knew how much Jesus loves you! You really do not need to fear.

    "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love." 1 John 4:18
