Everyone has an opinion, and we often press our opinion, often risking friendship, employment, even marriage. Why would we do that? Often the opinion on the table is of very little relative importance. Think of it: we rarely press our "opinion" relating to the salvation of souls, but we will all-out argue about diet, global-warming, or government fiscal policies, not to mention far less important issues such as the best prime-time TV show, or whether or not a certain actor deserved his/her Oscar award. We will remain silent about a neighbor's manifest soul-risking sin, but will have no qualms at all about advising another on the dangers of sugar.
