Free Resource | Does the Bible Promote Tolerance or Intolerance?
One group says the Bible is a book about love, mercy, and kindness. They think of the story of the Good Samaritan and of Jesus telling us to turn the other cheek. So how could anyone think the Bible prevents a tolerant society? But for another group, the Bible is far from tolerant. There’s the conquest of Canaan. There’s Elijah killing Baal’s prophets by his own hand. And in the New Testament, Jesus talks often about hell. That’s not tolerant. What then can we say in answer to this question?

People spend their lives doing things that they don't really enjoy. We can think that if we really get spiritual, life is going to be easy. The reality is that's not what we experience. Find out what the Bible has to say about that.

To get true lasting happiness – true joy – means recognizing your life needs to center on God. It means having the humility to turn to God and say, "I need you and not my personal gods of self: sex, career, selfishness."
