Christian Scrupulosity Peeps
As you know, our OCD can tend to create a distorted view of who God actually is, who we are, and how we are supposed to live as Christians. It’s even more difficult when the one place we are supposed to go for peace seems to condemn.
Yes, we must do ERP in order to fight back against the OCD demon. But we also need to take attention off of ourselves and turn it to who God actually is. We need to get a right view of who he says he is from the Bible.
With that, I’m going to be starting a live stream either on Friday nights or Saturday nights that is geared for those of us in this boat. The focus would be encouragement to keep paddling, truth of who God is as he actually is, in general fellowship.
I found for many those nights can be the most lonely times when evil thoughts start to churn up about not being worth it anymore. I know this because I’ve had those thoughts.
I’m curious if people here would be interested in it. We happen to have quite a few scrupulous people in our church, and we have a good mental health support group so I’m doing this for them and any others that would benefit. Ultimately it’s for Gods glory not my own. I’m battling right along with you. Have been for four years now.
