Same as Adam and Eve. They had no church to go to. If a man is stranded on a deserted island, can he have communion with God? I say yes.
That is the experience you have never had. The Bible is words on paper to you. To me they are divine inspiration from God. The Word of God triggers the heart of a believer to open up, hear the word directly from God and to have communion with Him. A spiritual experience that you have never had. If you had you would not be confused and jaded as you are now.
A humble, repentant and reverent heart finds God within.
Going to church and having the baptism of the Holy Spirit is not the same experience. An experience that has been shared with and confirmed by billions of Christians worldwide. That is what comprises the brotherhood and sisterhood of Christ. That is what you have not experienced. That is all that is really true and meaningful in the world.
