Get yourself a New Testament. Start reading from the Gospel of Matthew. Do not be disappointed when you read some of the same discussions over again more than once.
Read at least through the Gospel of John and the book of Acts.
Gospel means Good News. The Good News is about how the Son of God a Man Who is God incarnated came to be our Savior and Lord and to make us like Himself - holy, righteous, with eternal life - beloved of His Divine Father.
He can give us a brand new life and God becomes our Father in a very loving, close, and intimate way.
You'll spend years diving into the unsearchable riches of wisdom in this book the New Testament. And you should read the entire Bible too for a much better backround of understanding of the Christian Gospel.
CARM stands for Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry. Some of your questions can be fairly addressed at www.carm.org.
I would encourage you to start your day reading the Bible for about 20 minutes. Let reading the Word of God be the first transaction of your day if possible. When something seems to jump off the page and speak to you personally, stop. Take a little more time and pray to God about that portion that you read which seems to speak to your life personally.
Call the Son of God "Lord Jesus." Thank Him for dying for you even though you cannot see Him. He will manifest Himself to you and no one will be able to convince you that you have not met God.
