Respected Sirs,

I am from a non-Christian faith. I was spiritually confused until I came across Jesus Christ.

Before that, without proper knowledge and due to a hardness of my heart, I abused Him very badly however after believing in Him, I tried to practice the Christian faith.

Nevertheless, the remains of my past faith and fears still haunt me and I do sometimes fall from the Christian belief. I am feeling extremely guilty. Even now, I am spiritually confused. I don't doubt Jesus but I am not baptized and I am not sure if it can happen in near future. All I am doing now is praying.

  • Can I be forgiven? and
  • Can you kindly guide me in these matters of faith and strengthening them?

Also please intensely pray for me.

Bob replied:


Confusion is a tool of the demonic forces that seek to keep you away from Christ. You can always be forgiven, Christ bears you no ill will, but rather wants to help and save you.

Find a good priest and talk to him about becoming Catholic and you will discover the fullness of truth in Christ.

Confusion will diminish as the light of grace fills your soul and you live in Christ.

Don't be afraid, God loves you.

Dear Anirudh —

In addition to Bob's very good answer, I would suggest that you familiarize yourself with the Christian faith.

The word Catholic means the fullness of the Christian faith. For that reason, I would suggest you get, if possible, a cheap copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

It will have all the basic teachings of what we believe as Catholic Christians.

Hope this helps,
