There are so many, but I really enjoy Wade "We're Not a Cult" Englund's opening post in the thread he started, "Great Relief for the "Ark-Steadiers."
This post just so perfectly captures the mindset of "our job is to do as we're told."
There seems to be not a few good and faithful members who have been troubled by the policies and practice of the Church and its leaders (both past and present), and this to the point where these members, in their position of relative ignorance and lack of authority, have felt themselves in a position to counsel and criticize both God and the bretheren. And, when things don't seem to go as they believe they ought, and even when things do eventually come around to their way of thinking, they may become disgruntled and even loose faith.
The wonderful news is, there is relief for these good and faithful members. God, in his infinite wisdom and love, has put his perfect Son in charge of the Church, and his Son has establish his kingdom on earth, where admittedly fallible leaders are called by revelation and inspiration, and where each member is given their own respective stewartships and responsibilities and accountabilities. In short, God has established order and lines of communication and authority.
What this means is, when the Church leaders sets forth a practice, then all of the why's and wherefore's are really between them and God. They are to answer to God and not to us, for what they do in their callings. Since it isn't our responsibility, we can be greatly relieved to know that we don't need to capreciously make their business our business, or steady the ark of their stewrtship. We can unburden ourselves from the unwarranted responsibility of usurping their authority, and can be relieved to know that we can swallow our pride, trust in God, and concern ourselves with minding our own business. In fact, it is preferred, and works bests for all parties, when we do mind our own business--which entails striving to grow ourselves towards becoming like Christ, and to assist others within our stewartship to do likewise.
So, ye who have been heavily ladened by wrongfully taking upon you God's and the Church leader's business, lay it all at Christ's feet. Let him make your burden easy and your yoke light. Trouble yourself no longer with things that don't concern you. Rest your mind instead simply on what you have been called and are intended to do.
And high five to Selek in the same thread for cogently describing the tribalism, hyper-defensiveness, and persecution complex that we all know and love.
Those who wish to attack the true Church of Jesus Christ will find (or invent) reasons to do so- no matter how many you take away.
Throwing our earlier leaders and beliefs to the wolves in the hopes that they'll suddenly like us is futile, intellectually dishonest, and morally indefensible.
Appeasement is the way of the coward- the Danes knew it, as should any reasonably serious student of history.
"Once you have paid the Danegeld, you're never rid of the Dane."
Someone who is willing to belittle the Church in order to win a pat on the head from the rabid apostates, or to throw the Church under the bus to win the fawning approval of Babylon will be willing to surrender much more if the stakes are higher.
We used to call such people "collaborators" and "Quislings"- now they presume to lecture us about propriety and being "open-minded" and "true Christians".
Surrendering one's principles, one's dignity, and licking the boots of tools, pawns, and sons of Perdition is NOT how one "endures to the end".
