As far as

As far as having an authority figure on a subject, I believe there should be someone who has more knowledge involved.  This person in my opinion serves only as a guide.  We all know the saying you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink (he’ll drink when he gets thirsty).  The same applies here, Paul shared his knowledge with us, but it was up to us to make sense of the words coming out of his mouth and from the various activities he had us do.  How else does learning really take place, unless you have a guide to expose you or point out?  I can show you the path but I can't make u walk down it, but if you choose to travel down the path I can't tell you how far to travel down it.
