i came onto something...
Lets be truthful here when you are a theist seeking answers you go to a priest he tells you to come and learn your answers and wisdom of god from the bible and he is the only one who can teach you. but take a step back there is the internet it can give you the answer you so need. and the bible isn't something you can learn from to answer everyday questions. so the person who is asking can go to that third party completely going past the first party I.E. the priest or pastor to get the answer and a fast and timely manor. this is the part were most people loose their faith because the bible is something like most religions have a problem with is the contradictions in their own texts. those feelings of answers would have done and filled a void instead of given some well rounded answer around a contradictory text and feeling some what unsatisfied, and having the priest tell you over and over the answers take time to come but they do not.

Most times the pastor or Priest will want you to come to them, this is because they are afraid of you being persuaded by other religious beliefs that may be different than yours.

the other reason is they are afraid for the person with answers to find out the harsh truth. religion is wrong and its always been an issue with religion even in the beginning.

Yep, fear is behind just about all beliefs, most don't like their treasured beliefs questioned.

Nothing you said in the op is true. The bible tells us we do not need a teacher/priest if we have the Holy Spirit.

I was taught how to use the bible, and it's supporting reference books. After that ever answer I have ever been lead to has not been from a priest or preacher. It was from the direction of the Holy Spirit.

But we all get that when we are involved with whatever, we feel sure of ourselves, even when we fall in love with someone, we feel that the person is the person just for us, and it usually works out that we were wrong, all because of our emotions controlling us.

I would suggest that this is your brain working on multiple levels without conscious realization thereof. But, of course, we know what any sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from.
