But I'm right!

May God grant that I do not condemn anyone, nor say that I alone am saved. But I prefer to die rather than violate my conscience by defecting from what I believe about God.—Maximus the Confessor (d. 662)as quoted in 2000 Years of Christ’s Power, Part 1

Would that we all had that humble an attitude! He didn't spout off with a bunch of anathemata, he just stated what he felt was true and decided to live by it—even to the point of exile, not just once, but twice. They also cut out his tongue and cut off his right hand.
