Commandments from God do not work the same way that military chain of command works.
God is the one and only authority. If a person misinterprets or purposely changes God's commandments... the person who believes and follows through on the misinterpreted command is at fault. We are not suposed to take orders on this level from other humans.
This is why, if a person considers themself a Christian, it's important that the person not just take someone else's word on things. Religious instruction is good. Exchange of ideas are good. But in the end each person is responsible for what they do.
