Link below refers to it from 3rd century BC.  I have read previously from 
sources 4th century BC.  But I prefer not to withhold you from the pleasure of 
doing your own research.  I also believe you should read the book so you are 
talking about something you have read rather that heard about.

it isn't necessary, I do not judge them by the name of their sect. I do not 
judge them at all.  If they believe rightly, I don't care what they call 
themselves.  Believing rightly they are brothers.

Teach what you think is wrong with people to someone who cares.  I just plain 
am not interested in hearing about the things that others do that is wrong.

So that we can continue, find someone you approve of and talk about him or her.

Do your own homework and then criticize people.  Don't collect the sayings of 
people and make your decisions.  The scripture says all people are liars.

Remember this and the decisions were written by men and are opinions.  Read 
the book and see how your spirit attests to it.

It is a long read, so I don't expect to hear from you for about a week.
