Everyone has their own beliefs. It is often said there is no religion in heaven. I have to agree with that…
God didn’t make religion. Man did. God just wants us to take his word for what it is. So often people try to find clarity in others opinions. We shouldn’t worry about others opinions on the Bible, but instead study it . Yes, don’t depend on your pastor or religion to learn about God. Depend on God’s word.
The more you study his word the more clear it will become . Pray that God opens your eyes to his word.
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. ”
