I have an obsession that I'm going to Hell and I perform the compulsions of researching how to be saved from Hell and seeking reassurance from people that I'm saved. Does this sound like religious OCD?

If your thinking and researching about this takes up at least an hour of your day, it could be OCD. The way to know for sure is to speak with a therapist.

Sorry you’re going through this. Growing up gay, I always thought I was going to hell and it really frightened me and has left a lot of lasting damage. I eventually just forced myself to stop believing in religion which has caused issues with my openness to spirituality in general.
