“On today’s episode, we are back with part two of our series on obsessive-compulsive disorder. I hope part one whetted your appetite and left you wanting to know, ‘what do I do now that I know a little better what’s going on in the experience of OCD?’ If you haven’t listened to part one yet, I’d recommend that you go back to our podcast page or iTunes or wherever you got this podcast, and that you listen to that first before you hear what we have today. Either way, I hope you join us.” Host, Alasdair Groves
This is part 2 of a 2 part series: Part 1

Religious OCD: “Am I saved?” “Have I committed the ‘unpardonable’ sin?” “Is this action a sin?” “Why do I always feel condemned?” “Why can’t I get these thoughts out of my head?” This session provides a gospel-based ministry approach to Christians crippled by obsessive doubt, scrupulosity, and an overly-sensitive conscience.
