I have a question for all those who don’t subscribe to OSAS…and note this is NOT an invitation for everyone to junk this thread up with thousands of quotes and things prove OSAS isn’t true or is true or anything. But I do invite comments on the following.
Do you that don’t subscribe to OSAS or at least some kind of ‘security’ walk around in fear and terror all the time? I have to admit that I"ve often wondered what kind of misery it must be to have to live knowing that you’ll never know if you’ll make it. That you’ve done the best you could and still have to say “I don’t know” if ever asked “where do you think you’ll go if you die.” To have a lifetime of service to God “erased” by one, or even a series, of some sin and die in that state…and go to hell?
So please…don’t tell me I need to wake up and smell the sulphur burning, and don’t tell me all about the justice of God, and don’t give me one single verse or anything. I don’t want any of that.
What I want is for the non OSAS people to comment on if they’re ever scared to go to hell. What sin (mortal sin?) makes you scared? I’m looking forward to good Catholic reponses but all who don’t subscribe to it feel free to reply. You know? Do you sleep well at night just not knowing?
Good grief…I probably sound ridiculous. I probably sound fabulously fundy “**Friend! Do you know where you’ll go if you die RIGHT NOW???” **I’m not trying to sound like that. I’m really wanting to know how you guys deal with it, or if it’s even a problem for you.
