Are we capable of understanding God and Written Torah?

Some people ask me how do I know if I am right about my Torah statements and research. How do I know that I am capable of understanding God and Written Torah (His Law) completely.

The answer is in the Written Torah itself. Let's take a look at Genesis 3:22-23
YLT Gn 3:22 And Jehovah God saith,  'Lo, the man was as one of Us, as to the knowledge of good and evil; and now, lest he send forth his hand, and have taken also of the tree of life, and eaten, and lived to the age,' -- 
YLT Gn 3:23 Jehovah God sendeth him forth from the garden of Eden to serve the ground from which he hath been taken;
As you can see from Genesis 3:22, God clearly stated that we (humans, both men and women) are like God in understanding and knowledge of life (both good and evil parts of it). The only difference between us and God is that God lives forever. Otherwise, there is no difference between us and Him. We are just as capable of doing what He is doing (to a degree of course, but nevertheless). This is how I know that my understanding of His Law is possible and more or less correct.

Also, there is Deuteronomy 29:29
YLT Dt 29:29  'The things hidden are to Jehovah our God, and the things revealed are to us and to our sons--to the age, to do all the words of this law.
As you can see, Torah is stated to be ours and our sons, so ALL of us (both men AND women) are perfectly capable of understanding and interpreting the Torah. 

Do not be afraid! Stand up for yourself! Do not let some illegitimate impostors, like rabbis and other illegitimate authorities that are not mentioned in the Torah. (see Deuteronomy 17:8:13), tell you what to do, what Torah says and how you should live your life.

Trust ONLY God, Levites and Judges, and do not believe or listen to anything other than the Written Torah. You are perfectly capable of understanding the text yourself. Torah requires that you know the text.
