This I say with complete confidence which comes from my own personal experience:
If you put your trust in God, and not anyone else--you have nothing to fear and there are no legitimate boundaries on your spiritual education. You
will not be led astray by anything if you let God lead you.
And that's easier to do than it may sound. Just follow that little voice inside, you know, the one that always tells you right but that you don't
always listen to?
Well, that's God. The proof is the 'always right' factor. I'm not always right--but my 'gut' is! So that's not my gut, but my share of the
spirit of Truth direct from God. If we listened to God on a multiple choice test (you know, 'always go with your first instinct') we'd all have
had a 4.0 GPA!
This gut concept I have tested personally over my whole life--and the results are empircal and conclusive. And I've studied every thing sacred,
ancient, spiritual, occult (which truly means 'hidden' by the way, not 'denomic.') and I never thought I'd fall into a pit--because I knew God
wouldn't let me. Just know that, because it's true.
It's not strong faith to find a religion, pick it up and attach it with superglue to your soul--never wavering or growing even the slightest bit.
That is, in fact, the fear. Faith is knowing that wherever you look, if you're seeking truth and seeking God in that manner--God is what you will
find because there is a bit of truth in every single thing--usually covered with a bunch of chaff that is false, on the outside. God will make that
outer crap fall away before your eyes (perceptually speaking) and you'll have no problem knowing what 'truth' is. And you'll find that all things
in this world, all the millions and millions of little snail trails and diverge and flow and converge and separate into this religion or that
mystery--eventually they begin to narrow and strengthen to the point of just being one mighty flowing stream that flows from God.
And by all means, seek 'strength!' I know you don't mean Hulk Hogan strength, but rather true strength.... That, too, is an excellent way to
sleuth God out. Because God is Strength, just as He is Truth. And Love.
You can't miss the mark! And I bid you Godspeed on your journey (and I'll see you at the end!)
