The Bible tells us that to understand the Scriptures, we must approach it "in Spirit and in Truth" and we are told by Jesus himself that HE is "the way, the truth and the life". I'm afraid that most believers don't want to do the work necessary to commune with the Holy Spirit to have the Truth revealed, preferring to let someone else do it for them.

You are right about that. We humans tend to want to take the easy route. Been guilty of that many times.
I really like that last sentence and may borrow it.
