to test teachings (it's even encouraged in the bible so we can become wiser and have discernment and not be fooled by even those 'wolves in sheep clothing'). and you don't need any 'middlemen' here to verify your wisdom or follow your heart and intuition - sounds to me like they are reliable, based on how you speak. i didn't find belief or faith in the church, either, though later i realized the church is a place to go to be with other folks who realize their personal relationship with their maker, and to build on wisdom and understanding. some who are seeking DO turn to the church as an option, and can come away satisfied. as you said, it's a personal thing.

as for faith, none of us were there in the beginning, before god, and therefore cannot entirely explain him. but you seem to have the literally proverbial 'mustard seed of faith' which will be satisfied in its search, so fear not. :)
talk to him by yourself, and listen, too, if you're serious (and i believe you are, even though they're just your words and we haven't met - heehee). i know this conversation can be provocative and interesting, but don't let it be a substitute for a more personal conversation with 'you-know-who' - i think you'll make greater strides in your search.

i admire the strength of character you showed in firmly establishing your entity. i have much to learn from it, and hope to do so. wish me luck or pray for me, whichever you are inclined to do now or later. :)
