Basically I need some help from you guys and God, but to be frank I'm not sure what kind of help.
I guess the best thing to do would be to start with my problems;
Essentially, I have arrived at the choice of Coptic Christianity after much spiritual searching, and it has felt right for most of the time I've been "believing" in it, and I thought I'd discovered the truth. However, lately I've been feeling huge doubts, and I don't know what to do to counter them, I've tried asking for God to help me in my disbelief as someone suggested earlier when I mentioned this issue a while back. However, after trying this, it feels like I'm avoiding the issue, and it feels like I don't, deep down inside, feel confident when I say "I believe Lord, help me in my disbelief".
Also, I have the problem of grasping the concept of Hell. While I can accept God's Judgement is eternal, and that "His ways are Higher than [our] ways", I cannot get my head around how Hell, an eternal seperation from our Father, and eternal punishment, can be fair. It just boggles my mind, that for example, some people who truely believe they are following God how he wants them to, but then likely end up in Hell. I'm not saying I doubt the Judgement of God is fair, rather I'm having trouble getting my head around it, and hope perhaps someone can answer this.
Also, on the topic of Hell, I have heard Hell is seperation of God, but how can man, or anything at all for that matter, exist apart from God? Isn't He the "Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End"? How can someone exist without God?
Also, how come there are so many people so adamant they are correct in their faith, such as Jews and Muslims who will be punished? I realise that some are probably their religion out of pride or want, but what about those that genuinely believe what they follow?
I pray someone can answer these problems as they are really giving me trouble
