Salvation Doubt (OCD)

    I suffer from OCD which is really hard especially if it involves my spirituality I believe in Jesus and I believe in him. But my environment I live in has changed and the changes I’ve seen made me uncomfortable. Ever since the George Floyd death and the BLM and the upcoming elections I’ve seen a surge in racism and violence I never seen before. The worse thing is that politically people used the Bible to justify racism and I had the misfortune of reading some ugly Theology that I can’t be saved because I have no soul because I’m non-Caucasian. as a Christian I refuse to believe it because it’s against my beliefs and the beliefs of my friends and family who are all multicultural but deep down in my mind it makes me doubt and I wonder if it’s true. have I been condemned since birth because of my non-Caucasian heritage?

    I do my best not to be racist I go to church read my Bible, pray to God and I’m blessed to live in a community who loves one another regardless of race color.

    I try reading the Bible verses over and over even the ones falsely interpreted to debunk this racist belief hoping and praying that God’s salvation and definition of people of Israel extends not by race but at least to anyone Who Choose to follow the name of Jesus Christ. I don’t know if it’s actually my mental state about the direction America is going lately or the Pandemic or it’s just my mind that is affecting the way I see God all I know is I can’t trust always my mind and I can only hope and pray that God is good to all who believe in him including me.

    I am a Caucasian/White and I tell you that you do not have to be a Caucasian to have a soul :)

    If you live, experience and know about yourself, you are a soulish creature as any other.

    Hi and welcome. :)
    Just some Bible verses for you. Sorry to hear you're hearing things like that. But God's Word is true.

    “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
    John 3:16‭-‬17 ESV‬‬

    This is for everyone. You included. It's for all of us.

    This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Saviour, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.
    1 Timothy 2:3‭-‬6 ESV‬‬

    The Lord is not slow to fulfil his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
    2 Peter 3:9 ESV

    He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.
    1 John 2:2 ESV

    For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
    Romans 10:13 ESV

    I hope you can keep your eyes on Jesus.
    Look at this truth.

    Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    1 Thessalonians 5:23 ESV

    Hope you can find the encouragement and support you need on here. Take care.

    I do not know what OCD is. But I would like to know:

    What is it you believe in Jesus? And what did this “Jesus” do so that you believe him?

    Does your belief in this “jesus” depend on your changing environment?

    Does your faith in this “jesus” depend upon your feelings, say of comport?

    Does your faith in this “jesus” depend on hearing or reading certain “theologies”?

    And just for interest’s sake, do you think “theologies” save?

    Does your faith in this “jesus’ depend on the beliefs of your friends/family or society you live?

    Do you think the direction America or the world is taking can influence a Christian’s view of seeing God?

    Do you doubt salvation in Jesus Christ?
