  1. 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?
  2. What is the meaning of this Bible verse: "For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief"?
  3. So, today I was doing something (something "not so good") and suddenly that voice inside my head told me: "If you won't stop doing that thing, you'll get possessed." I didn't actually stop doing that thing. Was that voice God or just my OCD?
  4. Science and Faith

    Thanks! Would check it out
  5. Science and Faith

    Do science and the Bible contradict themselves? Not actually. They even work together. I am very interested in science, and in the same time, I love God. When I refer to science, I want to say mathematics and programming. Programming is based on logic. Logical sentences that have one and only one answer (true or false). Does the Bible contain logical affirmations or things related to science? Of course it does. Always. And if you use your intelligence to read every page, you realize that science is used almost everywhere. From maths ("So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom." - Psalm 90:12) to the laws of physics ("See, the Lord, the LORD Almighty, will lop off the boughs with great power. The lofty trees will be felled, the tall ones will be brought low" - Isaiah 10:33). Some people make a false affirmation, saying that most scientists don't believe in a higher power. Think about it again. - Einstein believed in a created Universe (although he said that God is "human's weakness") - Newton believed in God ("Gravity explains the motions of the planets, but it cannot explain who set the planets in motion. God governs all things and knows all that is or can be done.") - Kelvin was a Christian - Michael Faraday was a Christian - Larry Wall (creator of Perl programming language) is a Christian And I don't just refer to people who say that believe in God. I refer to people who really believe in God. (although Einstein could be an atheist and Newton an anti-trinitarian). Even if some scientists made theories, a scientific theory isn't a law. (reffering to the theories that contradict the Bible - if they do, 'cause I'm not sure they really contradict it) In conclusion, even if the Bible was written thousands of years ago, it still has effect in our world today, no matter what words it used to replace scientific terms.
  6. Hi, so, I am a Christian and I always loved God and I am thankful to Him for everything. But there's a question. I have Scrupulosity (a type of OCD) and I often think that when I forget thinking about God (doesn't mean what. An image of Jesus or the Bible or the Cross, or something) it means that I began being too attached of this world. When I do something, like a school project I feel proud for what I did. Is this bad? When I do other things I forget thinking about God. Does this mean I was to attached of this world? I do then compulsions (for example I ask for forgiveness) to be sure that God isn't mad at me.
  7. Just found a quote that explained what "the god of this world" means: The phrase “god of this world” (or “god of this age” [NKJV]) indicates that Satan is the major influence on the mind-set expressed by the ideals, opinions, goals, hopes and views of the majority of people. His areas of influence also encompass the world’s philosophies, education, and commerce. The thoughts, ideas, speculations and false religions of the world are under his control and have sprung from his lies and deceptions. Anyways, some doubts about this quote. Does that mean that school is even influenced by Satan? Every thought is influenced by Satan? Sorry for being too "scared" or something like that but I've got Scrupulosity.
  8. Hi. I was diagnosed with OCD and especially two types of OCD: Scrupulosity and HOCD and the second is so intense that I just can't get the thoughts out of my mind. People on the forums for OCD recommended Yoga to me. Question: Is it evil? I've heard some people saying that Yoga can bring demonic influence to people.
  9. Don't understand me wrong. I am a Christian but sometimes I experience intrusive thoughts like: "Christianity is only for people who don't think" or something like that. I know my thoughts are wrong. I know these thoughts are uncertain, and not true. But it's like: Why did many smart people get involved in the occult? Many questions to ask. I have been diagnosed with OCD and my doctor prescribed me Zoloft. Allthough I don't take it. I don't feel I need them. Umm... some answers? Thanks.
  10. Of course the Church is important but the one who saves you is Jesus. I go to Church, because I feel like I "need" it. But why would you attend Church if you don't believe that Jesus is your savior? Believing in Christ is the only path to salvation. Don't worry about the Church. You can change it if you want but make sure it is a Christian one.
  11. Hi. I've heard people that said that God doesn't want us to rationalize things, or that God doesn't want us to use our intelligence. Is that right? What does this actually mean? Is it in the context I'm reffering to?
  12. Succubus?

    Months ago I suffered from Ipohondria. I went to the hospital 3-4 times in a month just to make sure I'm okay. The doctor told me to stop thinking negative because it could lead me to OCD. Well, how about that? Even a therapist told me indirectly that I have OCD. She reffered to "rituals", or better said, compulsions.
  13. Movies usually don't hurt. But they can badly influence someone. Now, watching movies that contain scenes where people practice sorceries isn't something dangerous as long as you don't go outside and try to do witchcraft.
  14. Succubus?

    Well I will have my first therapy session in the 25th of august
  15. Hi. I've recently overcomed HOCD (obsessions about being gay and fear of having intrusive gay thoughts). I began developing VERY STRONG feelings for the girl I love and it just seems very... weird. Even if I think at her I feel anxious and without power. As I have another type of OCD, scrupulosity, I'm scared she might be...you know... Succubus? Yeah it may sound irrational but that's what scrupulosity really does, am I right? Do we, Christians, really believe in the existence of those "demons"? How can I know I'm safe? I know this might be a childish question or something like that but OCD is OCD.
