Can somebody explain the differences between discipline, judgment, and wrath of God? And where torment can come into place as a believer? I know Christians are all disciplined. Some Christians are judged (unworthy partakers of Communion) but their salvation is still secure (God creates weakness, illness, and finally takes them home in sleep if they continue to partake unworthily), and unrepentant sinners will face the wrath of God. I know that the nation of Israel was judged but also promised to be restored by the Messiah Jesus. I have had my share of torment. I don't know where exactly it comes from. I've forgiven everyone who has wronged me, so that shouldn't be it. I do have a mood and thought disorder (mental illness). The torment gets to feeling like wrath, and my faith is all but extinguished. But usually sooner or later I come out of it with faith remaining and God hasn't struck me down dead. So if anyone can instruct me about their experiences with these things, that would be much appreciated. Thanks.
