So glad that this happened to you! It was a blessing because now you are free to discover truth for yourself. This truth is the spiritual truth that Christ Jesus spoke of. The church during the time of Christ was the bling guides or Pharisees. This has not changed! The same church that claims to worship Jesus and believe in the power of the Holy Spirit really does not!
Oh I could say much more!
You are making discoveries that will lead you to discover religion is anything but God and love. It is the doctrines of men. I say this not to undermine the scriptures. On the contrary the scriptures embody spiritual truths and principles that contemporary man has yet to fathom.
