Often the Christian may be accused of being narrow-minded because he insists that we MUST completely obey Christ. Yet, all of life is narrow. There is no room for broad-mindedness in the chemical laboratory. Water is composed of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. Deviation is forbidden. There is no room for broad-mindedness in music. There are only eight notes in an octave. In the mathematics classroom, things are narrow. Geometry, calculus, and trigonometry all allow zero variation from accuracy. The solution to the problem is either right or it is wrong. On the athletic field the game is played by the rules.

How then, shall we expect that broad-mindedness shall rule in the realm of Christianity and morals?
