One of the big things that is tricky for me is authority and there is allot of it in the church. RC churches have made cruddy decisions in the past in the way they have delt with unacceptable behaviour in their church leaders to the point where its become a international scandel. Some of the other protestant churches that teach a gospel of prosperity have made really bad decisions about how they obtained and what they did with church money....so how does the Orthodox church handle it when something serious happens in their chain of authority?? Is there a solid system to deal with it.... who is responsible and what happens usually?? Is there something in place like people checking up on them that prevents people from misusing their positions??
I haven't heard any bad stories about the Orthodox and i don't wan to either.... i'm sure ppl make mistakes but i need to know what happens in the system when something serious happens??
