The theme is: Be perfect, don't give others any room to criticise you, don't let them find fault in you.

Somewhere in the NT - I think Paul.

This?

DR Mt 5
43You have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thy enemy. 44But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you: 45That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust. 46For if you love them that love you, what reward shall you have? do not even the publicans this? 47And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more? do not also the heathens this? 48Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect.

NAB Mt 5
Love of Enemies.*
43
b “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’c
44
But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you,
45
that you may be children of your heavenly Father, for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.
46
For if you love those who love you, what recompense will you have? Do not the tax collectors* do the same?
47
And if you greet your brothers only, what is unusual about that? Do not the pagans do the same?*
48
So be perfect,* just as your heavenly Father is perfect.d

And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching. Teach the truth so that your teaching can’t be criticized. Then those who oppose us will be ashamed and have nothing bad to say about us.

Yes, it does, though it's not as stringent as he remembers it.

I had read it years ago and remembered only the general idea.
