Nothing more important to give

It might seem surprising on first thought, but the fact is there are limits on differences of opinion among those who are devoting themselves to living by the Science of Christ.

Let's say, for example, you feel the position another Christian Scientist is advocating in regard to your branch church affairs is wrong. You don't just feel it's wrong but that it misleads people dangerously in a wrong direction. You can express your view in a normal way—perhaps in your executive board or church business meetings—but you are not to be drawn into anger and personal condemnation, either in public or in private. To foster that kind of atmosphere would actually be more sinful than what you think your opponent is doing wrong.
