There are no "steps" to leaving God's system - most of us fall in and out of it for the most part of our lives. We only pray, as the prophets before us did, that we "die as submitters".
As for the arguments and bickering that you may see here...It is human nature to argue even when the knowledge has been attained...
3:19 The system with God is submission, and those who received the Book did not dispute except after the knowledge came to them out of jealousy between them. And whoever rejects the revelations of God, then God is swift in judgment.
What I have come to learn is that the path to God alone is never easy. You lose friends, become isolated, get shunned by family, are ridiculed for going against the majority, etc.. Add to this cocktail the tests that God will send upon you to test your conviction - and that is when people leave or break or simply revert back to their old ways.
29:2 Did the people think that they will be left to say: "We believe" without being put to the test?
29:3 We had tested those before them, so that God would distinguish those who are truthful and so that He would know the liars.
May we all have the strength and good fortune to die as submitters...
