The newborn is a helpless infant; she will die unless she receives adequate nurture. So it is in the spiritual dimension. Where to go for nurture?
The church! the best church you can find, the one that best meets your needs and offers a way to love people.
The church flawed! yes! but I, too am flawed, and if I can't find a perfect church (not likely), then I'll settle for the best one I can find, the one that comes closest to meeting my needs.
If it's a large church, your next task is to find the best people for your purposes, the ones who can nurture you. The preacher? Maybe, but he's a busy man. There are others there who have more time for you, and more need for your love.
That's a life time quest. Ellie and I have lived in many places, and been associated with many churches, and found plenty of hypocrits and saints! We always tried to pick the saints.
We sometimes had to convene a community: two or three, or ten, or 20 as the Lord sees fit.
This is the real church, the place where a few people are learning to love one another and gaining the power to spread their love around. It really needs to be a small group where those things can happen with power.
Now the Bible! Flawed! yes, but full of wisdom and the possibility of nurture. Pick out the part that speaks to you. Stick with those (they may grow on you as you go through life). Don't worry about the rest of it. Don't waste time deploring the flaws, as I've done so often. Let it be. What speaks to your spirit, stay with it. The tenth time you read a passage something entirely new may happen in your life.
As a very small child I heard my father preaching about the Bible. He said it was a collection of books. He also said that we should add the later writing that speaks to our condition, and make it a part of our Bible.
I could, and will, make a list of the many books that have spoken to my condition through the years and have become a part of my Bible.
God bless us all as we journey toward the goal.
