You're mixing the teachings of Jesus with church doctrine. When you take a closer look at the two, it becomes obvious that the two are not parallel! I was saying that exact thing in my "you know what the problem is " post. The common perception of Christianity needs to be looked at again Their current perception has been causing deaths and conflict to a huge number of people in history and in the present.
Using your analogy, take a look at it another way: the teachings of Jesus is the vehicle, the driver is the believer. Let's say this particular driver is driving drunk. He's going to be zigzaging down the path causing the deaths and destruction of anything in its way.
Let's say in another situation you have a sober driver. He's going to be driving the car smoothly and maybe even pick up a few other people on the way.
Alcohol clouds a person's perception much like most doctrines and dogmas do.
