"He is too Narrow!"
"The preacher is sometimes accused of being narrow-minded because he insists upon the Christian's forsaking all to follow Christ. But all of life is narrow, and success is to be found only by passing through the narrow gate and down the straightened way.
There is no room for broad-mindedness in the chemical laboratory. Water is composed of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. The slightest deviation from that formula is forbidden.
Thee is no room for broad-mindedness in music. There can only be eight notes in a measure. The skilled director will not permit his first violin to put in even so much as an extra thirty-second note.
There is no room for broad-mindedness in the mathematics classroom. Neither geometry, calculus, nor trigonometry allows any variation from exact accuracy, even for old time's sake. The solution of the problem is either right or it is wrong - no tolerance there.
There is no room for broad-mindedness in biology. One varying result out of a thousand experiments will invalidate an entire theory.
There is no room for broad-mindedness in the garage. The mechanic there says that the piston rings must fit the cylinder walls within one two-thousandths part of an inch. Even between friends there cannot by any variation if the motor is to run smoothly.
How, then, shall we expect that broad-mindedness shall rule in the realm of religion and morals -Roy L. Smith (See Matt. 7: 13, 14, dm.)
