One of my biggest problems for me, it the idea, that I don't know near what I should about Christianity. So therefore I get uncertain alot of the times.

 

I also have trouble still somewhat with fearing the idea of hell.

 

Got any advice?

Think about something else. It sounds to me that you're already in a hell of your own making worrying about hell.

It may seem trite to say this, but keep looking, keep studying, keep reading. Whenever something worries you, or you have questions, search for answers, and don't be afraid to confront what you find whether it conforms to what you were expecting or not. Try not to look through preconceptions and prejudices, but with an attitude that there is much to be learned, and we may never find everything we wish to know.

 

I approach every problem with the attitude that there is an answer, an explanation. We may not know the answer (yet), but even knowing that no one knows is come consolation.

Learn.

 

Knowledge is power.

 

Christianity is patently false, its god is an impossibility, and its holy book is full of holes to say the least. The ridiculous doctrine of Hell isn't even accepted by some Christians.

 

The religion is like a disease that causes you pain. Research it as you would any other troublesome disease. If you suffered from say, chronic migraines, you would want to find out everything you could about the condition. Go, do thou likewise regarding Christianity and it's threats of Hell.

You learn to live with uncertainty. The belief that some things have answers is a luxury of youth. Some questions have no answers.

 

You learn to live with uncertainty one day at a time, one step at a time, one bite at a time.

 

Valk, rest in the knowldge that you are a good man.

Since embracing my atheism I've learned more about Christianity, and it's logical failures, then I ever learned as a believer, because now I want to be able to defend my beliefs. Some youtube channels I've found good 'weaponry' at are below.

This is so true, at least for me it has been.

 

I have to agree with the people espousing education here.

 

Knowledge is important. If you keeping studying there comes a point where you don't question because you have seen enough evidence to know better. That and time helps.

 

If you truly delve into studying christianity (I can't claim I have much, mostly read books by others who have done the legwork, and even that is enough) you will soon come to the revelation that it really is all just random BS.

 

Of course if you are always that paranoid you could just ask god to reveal himself to you if he is real .... you know that won't happen, but at least you tried, right?
