Have you ever heard anyone appeal to authority to settle a dispute? Authority will be with you always, and even I recognized the validity of authorities who did not approve of me. Those in such positions have the ability to set policy, but you should not mistake that for being a source of truth. Holding an office doesn’t make you right, it just makes you in charge. You are to honor those who rule over you, both in civil and spiritual matters, but you should not look to them as an unquestioned source of truth. Your search for truth may lead you to realize that they are in error even as you honor their offices.
