God talks directly to His souls.
His scripture is His Words to us directly in our souls.
Paul certainly believe that.a soul can meet Him directly, without a preacher in between.
Rom 10:13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” 14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? 15 And how are they to preach unless they are sent?
You tell Paul "Nah, I don't need no stinking preacher."
