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?

If you're following Jesus, do not be discouraged if you are experiencing a contrary current flowing against you, for it is living faith that swims upstream and only dead faith that floats downstream.

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.

We have a constant tendency to veer away from the freedom of the gospel. The price of real, spiritual freedom is to guard it and stand firm upon it.

The gospel has the power to really change people. Paul himself was running in one direction against Christ and the church, then he met Jesus and was transformed to turn and go in the opposite direction.

Our typical assumptions about freedom today have to do with politics or economics or morality. We need to hear what God means by real freedom, and Paul discusses that in Galatians.

If you are being persecuted for being a child of the promise, it is a telling identity marker that you are His. Who are you really? Are you defined by your parents, where you live, your gender, or by your relationship with Christ?

Paul is launching identity markers for the Galatian church. He's calling them to put their identity in the Bible story–Abraham, Isaac, Christ–rather than in a religiosity, Pharisaic, legalistic identity. Do you identify yourself with God's grace-filled people?

Paul lays out characteristics of proper pastoring because the Galatians were facing false teachers. How do we spot true gospel pastors?

These verses help us to discern good pastoral leadership, appropriate discipleship, and the right way to accept shepherding. We want you to have the tools of discernment so that you can receive true biblical teaching.

The gospel is not new but it is good news. Our job is to guard the deposit and present that message to other people, not to come up with some newfangled idea.
