A couple things from Joseph Smith

1. Salvation cannot come without revelation; it is in vain for anyone to minister without it (History of the Church, 3:389)

2. This is the principle on which the government of heaven is conducted--by revelation adapted to the circumstances in which the children of the kingdom are placed (History of the Church, 5:135)

Revelation is the insight from God that directs us through our daily affairs. It is inspiring to know that in His reign of the cosmos he cares enough for the individual to guide them through their practical and specific challenges.

So are we reliant on personal revelation in our life for salvation, or was Joseph Smith referring to the church leaders as the ones that people should go to for guidance and salvation?

Assuming somebody is wanting to always do the right thing and lead a fulfilling life, wouldn't just doing the logical right thing serve them just as well?

Who's logic would you use?
