​41) Priests forgive sins - (forgiveness obtained only in the presence of a priest or bishop) : including individual confession (but not inside a box) and that of the entire congregation. ( sacerdotal )  ( salvation )

The common claim to deceive people by the Orthodox is that unlike the Catholics their priests do not claim to forgive sins..... however they do!
