Hebrews 13:17 NLT Obey your spiritual leaders, and do what they say. Their work is to watch over your souls, and they are accountable to God. Give them reason to do this with joy and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for your benefit. We just recently left the church we have attended for the past 3 years due to some serious conflicts between the pastor and the church. Just how far are we to follow and obey our spiritual leaders?
