Trust issues

From Why I am Not Modern Orthodox:

In conversation after conversation with friends, peers, colleagues within the ex-Haredi community, what I often hear is not a rejection of religion itself but the erosion of a basic trust. Trust in those who claim the mantle of authority to deliver timeless truths. Trust in rabbis and ancient texts and traditions. Trust that anyone but we as individuals can determine our own truths and values.

Yes, yes, yes and yes.

And I would change the last line to, ‘Trust that anyone can determine their own truths and values.’
