It is kinda silly to say priests are not good advisors. As with anything, there are good priests, lousy priests and the whole range in the middle. Not every priest got the job straight out of college, many have worked in the secular world and became priests later in life.
What you say about interpretation is correct. Fortunately, we have been given the Church that provides interpretation and context. I agree with you that Christians should be studying Scripture. It is appalling that many Christians have never even read the full New Testament much less the whole Bible. Still, that doesn't mean Christianity is wrong, it just means that a certain Christian may be more lax in his/her faith than they should be.
I really don't understand your theory on fear. While I was a protestant, my faith was very fear based, but as an Orthodox Christian, I see the exact opposite. The faith is based on love. Many of the things you have written seem to be very influenced by protestant theology. If I am wrong, forgive me, but a lot of your comments bring back memories of things I was taught years ago. They are a distortion of Christianity and a main reason why so many people are attracted to atheism. They see the contradictions and the silliness and assume that is what Christianity is all about.
