What is formal training when it comes to God? There is none. When God has his hands on you. He is revealed the way he intends to be revealed to you. Unique and befitting just for you. You can "teach" the mechanics of the Bible. But you can't teach what it is to know God. Your experience is not the same as anyone else's. God hand picked you for who you are. For where you have been. And for where he intends for you to go. There are no other choices. God has provided. Jesus took the sin and shame away. Once God has made his presence known. Acknowledge it. And praise and thank him for the blessings. It is really simple. All the ceremony that the world looks to is just that ceremony. It is not a requirement to have pomp and circumstance to pray to or to have a one on one relationship with God.
2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you--unless, of course, you fail the test?
