    This subject cannot be addressed adequately in a blog post. I would direct you to the works of Orthodox bishops and priests for a more authoritative and comprehensive treatment. It is your turn to dig!
    I would only add that “obey your leaders” as it is being considered here applies only to those who are ordained within the apostolic succession, with both a valid ordination and right faith- Orthodox Christian faith. And that even these Bishops and Presybters (Priests) are not infallible. There are procedures available within the Church to address the tragedy of a clergyman who falls into doctrinal or moral error.
    Aside from these kinds of aberrations, “obey your leaders” is a basic precept in seeking the truth in Christ.
