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?

Acts 2 talks about the controversial topic of being filled with the Holy Spirit. It can divide us. The filling of the Holy Spirit is a very important teaching and experience for Christians—but some run away from this divisive topic and others run to extremes about the Holy Spirit. It's critical for us to understand how to walk in the Spirit.

The advance of God's kingdom, what Jesus is continuing to do, happens through us and our witness. This is the "why" for living, as a Christian. Acts is inspirational and directional for the Christian to live on-mission with Jesus in the power of the Spirit.

The irony used by Jesus here is thick. The Laodiceans had a medical college that specialized in ophthalmology. So Jesus says they need, "salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see." If we understand the background information, it shows us the real impact. We get to the application for ourselves through understanding it's original intention.
