I am having some health problems which seem to get worse when I try to get close to God through prayer and reading the Bible.
Can that be something that you make with your subconscious? I am not saying that it is such, since i do not know what your health problem is, but in some cases, a person's mind can trigger symptoms of some diseases.
The priests in my church say that it is just temptation from the devil. But it has been going on for many years and is destroying my life, even my spiritual life.
It can be a temptation from the devil, yes, but, as others said, try to see what doctors will say to that too.
For some time now I have wondered if this is because of separation from the true faith. Could it be because Christianity is a destructive and evil faith and the Bible is satanic?
Chronic illnesses are not triggered by touching the Bible or by believing or not believing in the Bible.
The most troubling part about it is that all these problems come to me BECAUSE of prayer and reading the Bible.
Is this what you think, or this is confirmed by a doctor? I have seen and read many things about illnesses, but i have never seen symptoms coming from prayer or the Bible. That can be only true if you have some form of anxiety or fear that triggers symptoms subconsciously when you read the Bible
The best solution is to talk to a doctor. If the doctors, after all the needed examinations rule out any somatic disease, then it can be something that is not somatic, but gives such symptoms.
