Gangra - Canon 10

If any one of those who are living a virgin life for the Lord’s sake shall treat arrogantly the married, let him be anathema.

Regardless of the reason for choosing the virginal life, as mentioned in the previous canon, there was possibility for one so committed to be spiritually proud: even more so was in regard to the immediate doctrinal battles being waged related to the holy institution of marriage.  The apostle Paul appealed to the church at Corinth to work together and know how the Lord has gifted and is using each one for his service (1 Cor 3:1-9).
