1 says the Lord: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge because you have rejected knowledge, Hos 4:6.
Unless a man goes to wait silently on the Lord, he will never obtain knowledge of the truth to then become free.
But the Comforter, who is the Holy Spirit and whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, John 14:26.
But you have to listen silently. You cannot pray with words, talk, or read the Bible, and hear. You must be quiet to hear.
The Comforter .. I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict and convince the world of sin, and about righteousness, and judgment. John 16:7-8.
A man cannot see the depth of sin in his heart until the Spirit shows it to him.
The beginning of truth is to learn from the spirit about the sin in yourself, and then to learn what is righteousness.
When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. For he shall not speak of himself, but he shall only speak what he hears; and he will show you things to come. John 16:13
When you shall know the truth, truth shall make you free; and if the Son makes you free, you are truly free. John 8:31-32,36
But the anointing that you have received from him abides in you, and you do not need any man to teach you;
but as the same anointing teaches you all things, and is truth, and is no lie
and even as it has taught you, abide in him. 1 John 2:27.

And eventually: you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. 1 John 2:20
