I am driving down the road with my eyes closed. I tell my front seat passenger to instruct me in my driving, when to move a little to the right or to the left… when there’s a curve, etc. How long before I run off the road?

Silly question, isn’t it? Silly way to drive too. But that’s exactly how people live their religious lives…listening to someone else instead of studying the Bible for themselves. God gave us a conscience and also a heart and someone else’s teachings and ideas will not develop our own hearts as studying it for ourselves will. True teachings will help us but there are far too many false teachings and if we do not look into the Word ourselves, we can easily be led astray.
