Tolerance And Diversity

January 17, 2008

“…walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love…” – Ephesians 4:1-2

Why is the tolerance and diversity movement so intolerant of Biblical Christianity?

If tolerance is a supreme virtue of the politically correct, why is there such hypocrisy, such intolerance of Christian values?

If diversity is about openness and acceptance of all people, why do the diversity police seek to enforce their man-made rules on Biblical Christianity?

Maybe it is because they don’t understand the true definition of tolerance. Tolerance means accepting people even if you completely disagree with them, and not trying to force them to believe what you believe.

Christianity doesn’t try to force anyone to believe in Jesus, but seeks to explain why it is a great way to live and believe. If you are really open-minded and tolerant, I hope you’ll consider it. You’ll find the church one of the most diverse groups in the world.
