Some people do all they can to guarantee others that their beliefs are endorsed by entities who are not available to confer with. When there is no explicit endorsement available, two men can worship the same entity in opposite ways with equal justification.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
