fear of eternity Anonymous 06/29/2022 (Wed) 04:41:49 No.13533
subject says it all, since i was a kid (born and raised catholic) i've had a fear of the very essence of eternity. both with god and seperated, i understand that i shouldn't fear it but i do, I've asked for priests advice during confessions, I've fasted, I've tried to pray as much as i can and I just feel like its all in vain (even though i know it not). I've never stopped going to mass weekly (I try to make latin mass as often as possible too) please help me frens this has been crippling my life for as long as i can remember, I'm hyperventilating just typing this and its always in the back of my head giving me a sense of dread if i'm not actively freaking out about it
>Eternity ? Either you go to heaven and become part of the singularity or you wait down in the pits of "there's no torture in hell" hell until God decides it's time to purge your very existence in nuclear-solar holy fire. What's there to fear in an absolute? Even the waifuists don't believe Gensokyo is eternal.
Don't worry. All those with souls go to heaven. We are only on Earth to grow from seeds into full souls. "hell" is distance from God. But God will always find you and guide you back to the path towards Him. Try your best to fight the temptations of the flesh, and then, no matter what you did on Earth, God will free you from this place, and you'll be in peace in heaven forever.
OP, please ignore the bizarre heretics above me. Let's lay our foundation with Jesus' words >You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me Therefore since it is in scripture that we find eternal life through Jesus, let us see what they have to say of this >For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness.” Now to the one who works, his wages are not counted as a gift but as his due. And to the one who does not work but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness, just as David also speaks of the blessing of the one to whom God counts righteousness apart from works: "Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not count his sin.” What Paul is saying here is that the greatest blessing imaginable, that of having one's sins ignored by God (and therefore being able to stand in His presence) is given even to the most wicked of sinners not because they were sufficiently righteous to merit it but because of their faith alone. He continues and says >For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith. For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. For the law brings wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression. For those who believe there is no wrath and no transgression, there is no mortal sin which can destroy the grace of justification; they will never fall into God's displeasure again no matter how much they sin because He no longer entreats with them as a judge with a criminal but a father with a son (in fulfillment of the prophecy "you shall no longer call me 'my lord' but shall call me 'my husband'"). And thus he ultimately concludes the passage >Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ
