Well, Mr. Average Strange Person, my answer is not so average.
I grew up in West Texas in a Southern Baptist household (sort of). My maternal grandfather was a Southern Baptist minister and former missionary to Nigeria, Africa. But my father studied Eastern philosophy, reading out loud to my mother about reincarnation, Hindu and Buddhist miracles and karma.
At an early age, I rejected my grandfather's church. My father moved us to Washington, D.C. so he could study Scientology. That was 1962. Later, when I got involved in Scientology, I experienced some of my most spiritual events -- out-of-body with full visual perception (pretty cool, that), and numerous miracles -- one resulted in opening wide bumper-to-bumper, rush-hour traffic on Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles for a distance of two miles! Talk about Wow! I then studied Buddhism and later even married a cute, Thai lady (but that didn't work out). But I gained great insight, even coming to understand Christianity because of Buddhist "paramita." Then I studied Judaism, the Kabbalah, Taoism and finally returned to Christianity.
I then discovered many things in Genesis which had remained hidden for thousands of years. And that was pretty cool in its own right. What kinds of things?
Finally understanding the outrageous longevity of the early patriarchs, and discovering a timeline in Genesis compatible with those of science. Finding the Kabbalah's "Tree of Life" embedded in two chapters of Genesis, and many scholars think the Kabbalists (Jewish mystics) started in the Middle Ages. Big surprise, there. I also found my "mechanics of creation" (which I had discovered 30 years earlier) embedded in Genesis. And perhaps the coolest was the discovery of the real culprit behind Noah's Flood. I discovered who the "daughters of men" were. And the real reason behind the Flood still gives me goosebumps.
I also discovered reincarnation and karma in the Bible and now understand why they are part of God's plan.
So, I am now a member of a denomination of one. Yep, only one member. And I wouldn't have it any other way, because we are each responsible for our own salvation. I understand now why we need to pass through Christ to get there, but only I can find the narrow path to him. Only I can decide to do it.
