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?

These six verses are probably the most important text in the Bible for us as we engage with contemporary culture. What does it mean not to judge? How do we correctly exercise our critical faculties as we go through life?

Paul was a man of passion and commitment. God uses us as he finds us, and he changes our heart and direction and gives us a new nature and desire. All of Paul's passion is now being used to glorify God.

Part of why we worry is thinking that we are defined by our material acquisitions. That's the message we hear over and over again: we are what we earn. But Jesus said our nature and worth are not defined by what we own.

Trying to satisfy yourself with things on earth—cars, houses, money, ambition, career—is like trying to satisfy a dolphin in a bathtub. Just as dolphins were made to swim freely in an open ocean, people are made for God.

Many of us have seen our earthly treasures go through some precarious times. But there is a treasure store that thieves cannot break into, and you can choose to invest there.
