Why I asked about the possibility of JW affiliation is they both condemn others for participating in extra-biblical practices, e.g. birthday parties, while at thesame time using a Bible they rewrote to satisfy their own extra-biblical opinions.
What you are doing is using multiple Bible translations ~ all by yourself. You need to get together with another person to do that ~ and there are many others who've been through that who have been taught to read Scripture the way Jesus said to do it.

I disagree. Religion is personal, between the individual and their Maker.
Sometimes you need help, but that why I search for opinions with listed references.
I have quite a collection of commentaries, and I use them.
But ultimately, my actions are my responsibility, and I'm the one who has to answer for them.
So while I may seek out others' opinions, it's between my Lord and me to come to the correct decision.
He may lead,but I have to choose and act to follow Him.
If someone else leads me astray, I still have to answer for following the wrong principle.
And I might show someone what I've learned, but it's up to them as to whether they act upon it or not.
