“ my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.” (Hosea 4:6)
In the above verse shows that a priest is human and they can get things wrong too. They too can be rebuked by God for their error of judgement. If the members of the church of God do not get the right message, then they could be destroyed for that lack of right information. It is imperative for the children of God to study the Word of God for themselves too. So take whatever your priest teaches but that should not stop you from checking the facts in order to confirm them.
