"When the definition was given, it was accompanied by the realization the Lord could have disputed every day of His life with someone. He deliberately chose to not contend. He was not an argumentative personality."
The reasons for the addition/expansion were given as follows:
- It gives greater understanding of the Lord and the Lord’s personality not found anywhere else.
- It assists people in understanding how to go about solving disagreements in the way the Lord did. It's directly related to us and our current desire for Zion, and is focused on the Lord.
- It directly relates to the answer about mutual agreement, as Denver stated it “accompanied” the revelation. Therefore it seems like it should also accompany the answer as part of 174. It sheds light on the Lord’s ministry and choices.
It is proposed that Denver's remarks be added as a second paragraph to the proposed Section 174.
