I also studied comparative religion in university as part of Anthropology if this is making it more understandable.
I also was searching for a nice Christian community in the net where to read and share my worries, you know, I also write in Buddhist forums for my delight, they are very fine communities too, but you are very warm and welcoming indeed.
Actually after joining your community my worries lessened. Because it is sometimes hard to cope with disbelieve or not enough believe around. Also Buddhist forums are excellent for self-development, there is a lot of wisdom of how you could reach higher levels and enlightenment but they are less engaged in worldly affairs.

but I very much believe in what is written in the Bible
Belief Is A Funny Thing
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matthew 24:24
It Can Tickle And Comfort
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6
And Lead A Child To Love
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16-18
In All The Wrong Places
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Hebrews 9:27
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
And Be Blessed Beloved
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

With :Christianity, versing other religions, you may find a few key differences I do hope and pray you will keep in the back of your mind. In Jesus, He paid our price of sin for us. In all other religions, we are required to try to make it to heaven by our own acts, which is impossible. Some religions focus on being a better us, or being as our own God. Who though, can stop our day of death? Stop the rain from falling? You see, as humans, we can never be Gods, but must understand we only have limited control given to us by God.
One more key factor, Jesus, after three days, arose again. What other called God can claim arising from the dead? What other acclaimed God can live inside of us and give us peace we have never known or felt before?
I appreciate all the insight you are sharing with us. We do enjoy hearing those with different stories than of our own.
If I may ask, however, of just one question. Though it is apparent you know and read your bible, have you ever asked God directly for a relationship with Him? Any love you see here fails in comparison with the love He has for you.
I hope we can chat much more in the future. Though I know your studies far out weigh mine, the love and the peace I have had since becoming a son of Jesus Christ is something I can never fully explain, and every day He reveals just how wonderful He truly is to me. Have a great day my friend.
