In the name of tolerance!
“Down with tolerance!”
“Will someone get this weirdo out of here?”
Tolerance used to mean welcoming different points of view…
“I say black!”
“I say white!”
...While respecting the other person even though you may not necessarily agree with them.
“Good debate, Senator White.”
“Good debate, Congressman Black.”
But today many people believe that to be tolerant means you believe all points of view are to be equally valid and true.
“What you believe is true and what I believe is true.”
“Teacher, would you accept my views even if they differed from your own?”
“Of course! There is no right and wrong. One point of view is just as valid as another.”
“Great! Let’s change this grade to an “A” because from my point of view, 5+6=9.”
Just as 5+6 doesn’t equal 9, there are many things in life that aren’t true no matter how much we want to believe them to be true.
Truth isn’t determined by popular opinion…
“We took a vote and decided not to believe in gravity any more. You won’t be needing your parachute.”
...Or sincerity of belief.
“...And we really really mean it too.”
“Must be true. Let’s jump.”
“Sounds good to me.”
There are also things that are true whether people choose to believe it or not.
“The people in this village don’t believe that the smallpox vaccine will help them. Let’s go somewhere else.”
“This is especially true in matters of faith and God.”
“Now, wait a minute. Isn’t it intolerant, condescending, and unloving to think anyone can know what truth is?...Especially truth about God?”
“Aren’t we supposed to be tolerant of other religions as equally valid ways to find God?”
“The Bible tells us that there is only one way to God- through His Son, Jesus.”
“For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:5)
“Come on now, Isn’t believing there is one way to God narrow-minded?”
“Not narrow-minded...but the Bible does say that the path to God is narrow.”
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (Matthew 7:13,14)
“So you think Jesus actually is the only way to God?”
“Yes, in fact God sent His only Son Jesus to show us the way to God.”
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)
“Why can’t I believe it to be true like you?”
“Because your sins stand in the way.”
“But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.” (Isaiah 59:2)
“All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
“But the good news is you can be forgiven of your sins when you place your trust in Jesus, God’s Son.”
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
Jesus died for you and rose again so might have eternal life.
“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)“Dear Lord, thank you for showing me the truth in your word. I now turn from my sin and place my trust in Jesus Christ to be my Savior and Lord...Amen.”
