Sooo I think I finally know my problem. It's a thing called Scrupulousity or The Doubting disease or Religous OCD. It's a variant form of OCD that can be found when a person with history of OCD becomes more religious and I've read several Christian articles on how it's the opposite of what God wants for me. It's a on and off doubt of salvation, morality and everything else. It tends too put a barrier. However I found out that people who suffer from it are very serious about there faith so I will take comfort in that so please some prayers so I can find the right help.

Scruples are a serious manifestation of spiritual insecurity and leads to a very troubled mind at times. I will pray that God provides you spiritual clarity of thought, wisdom, and comfort.

Article:

TREATMENT:

Treatment is similar to that for other forms of obsessive–compulsive disorder.[18] Exposure and response prevention (ERP), a form of behavior therapy, is widely used for OCD in general and may be promising for scrupulosity in particular.[1][2] ERP is based on the idea that deliberate repeated exposure to obsessional stimuli lessens anxiety, and that avoiding rituals lowers the urge to behave compulsively. For example, with ERP a person obsessed by blasphemous thoughts while reading the Bible would practice reading the Bible.[18][19]However, ERP is considerably harder to implement than with other disorders, because scrupulosity often involves spiritual issues that are not specific situations and objects. For example, ERP is not appropriate for a man obsessed by feelings that God has rejected and is punishing him. Cognitive therapy may be appropriate when ERP is not feasible.[1] Other therapy strategies include noting contradictions between the compulsive behaviors and moral or religious teachings, and informing individuals that for centuries religious figures have suggested strategies similar to ERP.[18] Religious counseling may be an additional way to readjust beliefs associated with the disorder, though it may also stimulate greater anxiety.[1]
