“The definition of new…tolerance is that every individual’s beliefs, values, lifestyle, and perception of truth claims are equal, and all truth is relative.” — Thomas A. Helmbock
“Tolerance is the virtue of those who believe in nothing. Rather than stand up for what is right or wrong, the voice of tolerance says we should just let everyone be, that we’ll better understand each other if we accept them as they are.” — Ryan Dobson
Adrian Rogers: “It is better to be divided by truth than to be united in error. It is better to speak the truth that hurts and then heals, than falsehood that comforts and then kills….it is not love and it is not friendship if we fail to declare the whole counsel of God. It is better to be hated for telling the truth than to be loved for telling a lie.”
“Better is open rebuke than hidden love. The kisses of an enemy may be profuse, but faithful are the wounds of a friend”. ~~ Proverbs 27:5,6
From Phil Sanders book: “A Faith Built on Sand”: quotes from Chapter 6, “The New Defined Tolerance”
God’s Word declares that We must Dare To Be Different!
I remember a book we used in 4-H some years ago titled, “Dare to be Different.” What a challenge this is to Christians today! Dare to speak out for the Lord; dare to do what is right when society says sin is okay; dare to grow in knowledge of God’s Word – and live by it; dare to invite others to attend worship; dare to care about others and about the church of Jesus Christ. One thing is sure, we can’t live like the world and make it to heaven. The world travels the wide road, but it’s the wrong road (Matt 7:13,14). Dare to be different! – John K. Wills Owingsville church of Christ Owingsville, KY
