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?

We do need to work hard to grow as Christians, but that is not the same as supplementing Christ with "religiocity". Paul points out some things that we don't need to be doing.
February 22, 2022
Because our culture assumes that religion is a matter of private devotion and that what we can know about God is precious little because he's a mysterious being, people tend to default to the view that God is a matter of opinion.
February 21, 2022
The greatest gospel of man that threatens our ability to understand that faith in Christ is what glorifies God...is the gospel of constant busyness. We've got to get beyond that to find what really matters.
February 19, 2022
There is a mystical faith union but it's not just between you and Jesus, it's between you and the cross of Jesus. That makes a big difference.
February 18, 2022
Paul tells the Galatians that the reason they have lost their joy and almost lost their faith is because they've lost sight of the cross.
February 17, 2022
Jesus has done everything that needs to be done for your salvation. We are all sinners, and we need to be justified. Find out what we must do to get right with God.
February 16, 2022
The word justification is often not really understood. Yet in many ways it is the heart of the Christian faith. We need to grasp it, and Paul helps us do that.
February 15, 2022
Just as there was a great need for clarity regarding the gospel when Galatians was written, so it is today. Paul helps us think clearly and feel deeply about the true gospel.
February 14, 2022
Paul himself is being accused of being a people-pleaser, or as we might put it in our contemporary society, he's being seeker-sensitive. Paul calls us back to center our lives on God.
February 12, 2022
Peter is putting on a mask. How do we take off these masks? The only way to not pretend is to realize that you are okay as you are now. You are accepted by God.
