Putting any (hu)man where the Holy Spirit should be is a form of idolatry.
Once people can hear and learn from the Holy Spirit instead of putting their trust in earthy “authority figures” they will learn TRUTH.
QuoteBut the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. 1 John 2:27~Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. John 16:13~
But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: Eph 4:20-21
