The Spirit of the Matthew Code and the Golden Rule

Principia embraces the spirit of the Matthew code (Matthew 18:15-17) and the Golden Rule (Matthew 7:12; see also Science and Health 497:26). These are valuable tools for resolving conflict in any Christian community; they direct us to love our neighbor (each other) enough to take our concerns to one another and treat others as we would like to be treated. If you would like support in thinking through how to honor these foundational Christian teachings, please ask for support from a coach, professor, dean, or anyone in Student Life.
