Do You Believe We Can Sacrifice Some Commands?

I have met Christians who in their zeal to fight error, believed they could sacrifice what they perceived to be lessor commands to preserve greater ones. However, do the commands of the Lord contradict? No, we can follow everything He tells us without being involved in a contradiction.
Yet, those in charge of condemning Jesus could not see that, for they willingly sought liars who would condemn Jesus, “Now the chief priests, the elders, and all the council sought false testimony against Jesus to put Him to death, but found none. Even though many false witnesses came forward, they found none” (Matthew 26:59-60a).
They believed Jesus preached falsehoods, but they could not see their own desire for falsehood, because their eyes focused more on stopping Jesus.
Do not get so caught up in stopping someone that you do not see your own error.
