"Why do I have to
believe in God the way that a specific "Religion" demands ie, Catholics and "the no
birthcontrol" thing or Baptists and the "no drinking" thing?
I cannot claim to know the mind of God, therefore I cannot credit any other human
being with knowing the mind of God. The only mind I can know is my own. And the
best way to learn from my mind is to keep it constantly open to any knowledge that
God wants to send my way, thus enabling me to find the "Absolute Truth" which God
himself has designed for me."

Those are denominations of a religion. How do you know any information sent your way is from God? Do you not believe in evil? If you had a way to compare your experiences to historical collective experiences would you use it? What if an adversary, (Satan), wants to fill your head with appealing politically correct nonsense?

"Why do I have to celebrate my Faith to the tune of words which may have come from
God originally, but over time(and proven human error,mistranslation for example), may
have become something entirely different from what God intended?"

The accuracy of the Bible's translations can be tested by comparing it to various different sources of earily manuscripts. So to assume that a bunch of errors have accumulated over time is uninformed. Any good modern Bible should be true to the original writting and gives alternative translations to passages in the foot notes.
