Perhaps, being all-powerful, God provides different road maps to different individuals?

I guess so if people want to choose that.

The two choices are
Eternal life
Eternal damnation

Yes .. absolutely. God meets us where we are. However, he continues to call us to the 'Truth'. When we follow that call, we become seekers of the 'Truth'. Christ did not state to refer to or consult Scripture for disputes and correction. He said to go to the Church as It is the final authority in Christianity. In addition, St. Paul states that the Church, not Scripture is "THE pillar and ground of the truth." (1 Timothy 3:15) Since the Church alone is mentioned as the pillar of truth, then It alone has the right to discern the truth and interpret Scripture. For if individuals could correctly interpret Scripture, then all interpretations would be exactly the same as there can only be one Spiritual Truth for the plural of the word "truth" never appears in Scripture.
