    I’m a spiritual mentor and future counselor specializing in religious trauma. The problem with the Christian religion as an institution is that those anxieties and fears can be portrayed that way. I recommend finding a universalist Christian church if you believe in the Christian path, because they are nowhere near as institutionalized and are much more welcoming and helpful as a community support

    Yes I can absolutely relate with this. Actually going through something similar at the moment. It is definitely an issue in my relationships and I’ve had a hard time overcoming this.

    Yes I dealt with this too it’s called religious ocd. When I got too much anxiety and intrusive thoughts from religious things, I would take a step back and calm down with the amount of religious stuff I was doing. In my experience, I think I just got overwhelmed. I still kept having faith in God, but just toned it down so that I wouldn’t go into ocd mode.
