It is a wonderful thing to live in a country where there is freedom to worship God (or not) as you choose. Many people living in the world today do not have such liberties. But is our society’s religious tolerance blinding us to the fact that it really does matter what you believe? The real question is: does God believe in religious tolerance?
Jesus Is The Only Way To God
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6). Notice that Jesus did not say, “I am a way,” just one of many ways to God. He said, “I am the way,” the only way to God.
All Other Ways End In Destruction
Jesus said, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat” (Matthew 7:13). According to Jesus Himself, the way to Heaven is narrow and found by few, while the way to Hell is wide and traveled by many.
God Demands Repentance
“The times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent” (Acts 17:30). Repentance means changing your mind. God says that if you follow any other way than His way, you are living in “ignorance” and need to change your mind. That doesn’t sound very tolerant, does it?
The Truth Matters
“There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 16:25). Tolerance makes for a nice country to live in, but having the freedom to believe something doesn’t make it true. Truth matters to God, and it is only by knowing, accepting, and following the truth that we can be spiritually alive and free.
What Is The Truth?
What is the truth about Jesus? He is God’s one and only Son, who suffered and died because of our sins: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). “Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18).
What is the truth about us? God’s verdict of mankind is not pretty. Without His salvation, we are all “dead in sins … having no hope” (Ephesians 2:5,12). However, our sins will be taken away “if we believe on Him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification” (Romans 4:24,25).
Will You Accept The Truth?
You can go on believing some other “truth” about God and about yourself, or you can accept what God says. It’s your choice. Jesus said, “If ye believe not that I am He, ye shall die in your sins … If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:24,31-32).
We urge you to turn to God and put your trust in Jesus Christ today: “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life” (Deuteronomy 30:19).
We can add your custom imprint to individual titles of Gospel Tracts, as well as our Calendar Cards. Please note that Tract Assortments, Poems, Mini Tracts, booklets, and some Believers Tracts cannot be imprinted.
How Much Does Tract Imprinting Cost? The imprinting charge is $4 per pack for tracts. There are no setup fees or minimum or maximum quantity limits, so when you order an imprinted item, feel free to order as few or as many copies as you want.
How Much Does Calendar Card Imprinting Cost? To order imprinted calendar cards, locate the special Personalized item in the Calendar Cards category. The imprinting charges are already built into this item; there are no other extra charges or fees.
How Long Will It Take to Get My Imprinted Items? Tract imprints of about 3,000 copies or less (per title) only require 2-3 business days for printing. Tract imprints of 3,000 or more copies (per title) usually require 2-3 weeks for printing. Imprinted calendar cards are usually shipped in about 1 week.
Where Does My Imprint Go? Every tract has a reserved space on the back (approximately 1" tall x 3" wide) for imprinting (see picture at right). The calendar card has a reserved space on the calendar side (beside the year). Your imprint will go in this space.
How Much Text Can My Imprint Include? There is room for up to 5 lines of text on Gospel Tracts (4 lines on calendar cards), with approximately 40 characters per line. Adding more text would require the text to be so small that we don't recommend it.
Can I Add A Logo or Image? Yes, you can upload your own custom logo or image. Remember that adding an image to your imprint reduces the amount of room available for text, and you should limit your text accordingly.

All imprints are reviewed by our designers for content and style before printing.
Do I Have to Enter My Imprint Over and Over? Nope. If you are ordering multiple tracts with the same imprint, you can enter all of the details with the first tract, and then enter "same" on Line 1 for the others. Likewise, if you have ordered imprinted tracts in the past and want to use the same information, simply enter "same as before."
