Who needs a Bible?

Some believe the Holy Spirit works directly on the heart of sinners to save them, and then to sanctify them, without any effort on the part of the one being saved or sanctified.

If that’s so, why are there commands in the Bible? In fact, if the Holy Spirit does the work of saving or sanctifying apart from the knowledge of the truth found in the Bible, then why did God bother to write it at all?
