Question’s in the title,
I ask this because I was a victim of incest between the ages of 2-3, and recently read that, even if people with my unfortunate history manage to muddle through some sort of religious devotion, their souls are so irreparably shattered that - even if offered Purgatory/Heaven during our judgement - we ‘cower and shrink away’ from God in shame. Can’t recall where I read it now though; it upset me so much I navigated away from the website, but it was an excerpt from a book by theologians.
This may seem like a daft question to many of you, but - after a lifetime of lapse Catholicism and having only late last summer been struck with a religious epiphany - the possibility I might choose hell by default because I’m so psychologically effed up (and I have to admit that I am) is utterly, utterly horrifying to me.
Can anyone help me on this? Allay my fears - if that’s doctrinally viable.
