Why Aren't You Tolerant?

Help to Answer the “Shock Troops of Tolerance”

We've become a very “tolerant” nation. Unfortunately, tolerance as it is now understood, is anything but openness to opposing views. The tolerance of yesteryear meant a willingness to gracefully bear with differing opinions. Nowadays, it means you must accept and approve of others' morally objectionable ideas. If you don't, watch out. Angry death threats followed a 14-year-old Maryland girl's sweetly-worded plea asking the Maryland Senate to keep marriage the union of a man and a woman. One online post said, “If I ever see this girl, I will kill her. That's a promise.” When it comes to moral issues and the distinctives of Christian belief—especially the view that Jesus is the only way to God—you don't need to be intimidated. Why Aren't You Tolerant? sheds light and instills confidence to help you understand and answer the objections raised against Christian beliefs and morals by the “shock troops of tolerance.” This quick guide to the new tolerance and its arguments equips you with the power of truth to “make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you” (I Peter 3:15).
