God gave us the Holy Spirit not the Catholic church to guide and teach us about God.
Just as Paul learned from the Holy Spirit.
The gospel of Matthew shows Jesus sending the apostles forth teaching about God. God gave us both the Holy Spirit AND the Catholic Church to teach us about God. The Holy Spirit guides and protects the teachings of the Catholic Church from all error with regards to faith and morals.
The Church needs to teach one who has yet to accept Jesus as his or her savior, to give their lives to God.
No one can teach another to know God except God.
(1 Corinthians 2:10-16) “These are the very things that God has revealed to us through the Spirit, for the Spirit reaches the depts. Of everything, even the depths of God. After all, the depths of a man can only be known by his own spirit, not by any other man, and in the same way the depths of God can only be known by the Spirit of God. Now instead of the spirit of the world, we have received the Spirit that comes from God, to teach us to understand the gifts that he has given us. Therefore we teach, not in the way in which philosophy is taught, but in the way that the Spirit teaches us: we teach spiritual things spiritually. A spiritual man, on the other hand, is able to judge the value of everything and his own value in not to be judged by other men. As scripture says;’ who can know the mind of the Lord, so who can teach him?’ But we are those who have the mind of Christ.
