The last day or so I have been having HUGE panic attacks. They are so bad that they remain through the day and I can’t even sleep.
The fear I have is not having a sufficient amount of certainty that I won’t go to hell.
I see alot of evidence that says the Catholic faith is true. I believe in the faith and if I were a betting man, I would put my money on the faith being true. If I follow the teachings, avoid sin, and love God, I can be assured I won’t go to hell.
The problem is though…I feel like I don’t have enough certainty that the Catholic. It feels more like a gamble.
Now it is true, that nothing in life is certain. For example, It is uncertain that if I sit in a chair, that it won’t break. Its a very high probability thing, so it doesn’t cause me that much distress.
What I ask of all of you to do is give me good evidence that I can trust the church just like I can trust that a chair won’t break if I sit in it.
