  1. Now I began asking myself: "What if God has actually called me to become a priest, or a pastor and that I wont need science for that. Therefore, he needs to remove my intelligence because emotional intelligence is more important?".
  2. The problem is I’ve got OCD and it began affecting both my spirituality and my passion for science. The things I love the most. I have read some posts regarding the fact that intelligent people are less happier, because they overthink things. And some intrusive thoughts came into my mind and made me ask myself: “What if it would be better for me to be happy? Is it better than being intelligent?”. Of course I knew those things were just some intrusive thoughts, or things resulted from my overthinking but I’m afraid that God actually “chose” to make me happy and took my intelligence. Yeah. That kinda sounds illogical. Can I receive a reassurance (I prefer something written in the Scripture) that God didn’t take my intelligence? I know Romans 11:29-31 says: God does not take back his gifts. He does not change his mind about those he has chosen. 30 At one time you did not obey God. But now you have received mercy because Israel did not obey. 31 In the same way, Israel has not been obeying God. But now they receive mercy because of God’s mercy to you. but doesn’t this refer only to spiritual gifts, like, His grace, for example?
  3. Will God punish me?

    And... am I arrogant if I just don't like spending time with him because of our different intellect level?
  4. Hi. So, we have a classmate at school that sometimes speaks without thinking. And he can become really annoying. Some guys of my class call him "idiot" and tell him to shut up. But I think that guy is not an idiot after all, I think it is more based on his choice. I've got OCD and it just tells me that if I'm not going to defend him, God will actually punish me and make me like him.
  5. So, because I've got OCD I began being worried to something. In Matthew 5:30 it is written, that if your right hand causes you to sin, you should cut it off. So, you should repent from everything that may be a tentation to sin. Found a better explanation on Biblehub: Not the senses only, through which we receive impressions, but the gifts and energies which issue in action, may become temptations to evil; and in that case, if the choice must be made, it were better to forfeit them. But talking about gifts, in Romans 11:29 it is written that God's gifts are irrevocable, without repentance. I have always based my life on science. Of course, I believe in God and have accepted Christ as saviour but I believe that advancing in science gets us more near to God. It is a proof of God's infinite intelligence. The thing is, I have had doubts about His existence (and then came back to Him, "proving" myself that He exists). Does this mean that I should've repent from His gift? The passion of science or the intelligence? What about the atheists?
  6. OCD

    So, the thing with the "powers" (that aren't actually powers) is just something psychologically. But those great ideas... they come from my head, and not from... don't they?
  7. OCD

    What about the thing with the "powers"?
  8. OCD

    Well, I actually am a Christian. I thank God for what I received from Him. The only thing that bothers me are the obsessions. So, repenting wouldn't be a problem. I asked for forgiveness, and I'm pretty sure God knows about my OCD.
  9. OCD

    I came again with a question regarding my problem. I've got Scrupulosity, probably the worst form of OCD I have ever had. I will consider you have read my other posts (involving my fears of being the Antichrist, etc.). Now I met another problem. I know this sounds weird but the thing is, when I'm searching a solution for something, I begin sometimes having thoughts that I am somehow "activating" some supernatural powers (that are not from God) and easily find the solution to that thing. Of course, I don't have any supernatural power but I'm scared. Can this be just something psychologically? Just a terrible source of "motivation"? Another thing is that sometimes I think that God disagrees with the fact that I study science. And when I ask for forgiveness for whatever simple thing (swearing, etc.) I just become anxious and think that God stopped me from doing science to, because it might be "secular". What can I do? How can I solve both of my problems?
  10. How would life be right how? God told Eve she will feel pain at childbirth but didn't pain come from the fact that in time our brain grew bigger? Would we still have technology? Would we still have so much knowledge?
  11. I think Revelation 17:10 is reffering to the Roman Catolic Church as the one who already "is", and not as the one who will come. So it is unlikely for the Catholic Church to be the Antichrist.
  12. You have probably read my other posts and if not, I have OCD and for six months I've been scared I might be the Antichrist. I just see coincidences like when I look at the phone, the battery is 66%, etc. I'm scared I may have my gifts because I am the Antichrist and am scared to ask for forgiveness because I worry that my gifts could be taken. As I was a child I showed signs of intelligence and wanted to become a priest at 5 years. I love God and I love going to the Church. I always loved Him. When I ask for forgiveness, I begin having something like a paranoia and think that God took my gifts. Then, when the intensive thoughts come back, my paranoia goes away. What can I do? Am I the Antichrist?
  13. Yup. The title says everything. Well, my family is Christian and they believe in Christ but they don't give it too much importance. Of course they go to the Church every Sunday and they pray. I'm scared they won't go to Heaven and I don't think telling them this thing will make them feel better. What can I do? Or will they go to Heaven?
  14. So, my question is if a Catholic can still go to a Catholic Church, practice their traditions and still be saved thanks to their faith in our LORD Jesus Christ?
