      What kind of bad thoughts are called intrusive?

      I used to have bad thoughts about the devil and worry sometimes. Now I have bad thoughts and worry more because I changed my ideas about religion. What can I do to stop this?

        How have your thoughts changed? Do you really need to worry?

        I changed my thoughts about religion, and now I feel a lot better.

        I guess sometimes we can be plagued with guilt about what we believe or don’t believe. Religious conditioning can be very strong! But we must question everything, even what we have been lead to believe is beyond question. That’s how we grow.

        I no longer believe in any literal devil.
