When one wades into the cultural battle for truth, one must be prepared to be called judgmental. “Judge not” becomes a favorite Bible verse of those who will accuse you of not being tolerant. However, there are 2 kinds of tolerance in our vocabulary. The tradition tolerance is recognizing and respecting other’s beliefs without sharing them. But the “new tolerance” calls for an elevation of all values and beliefs to a position of equal respect. I recently read where this kind of thought was deemed “cool” by a writer. Yet this cool tolerance is a slippery slope.
Those who want same sex marriage to be on the same respect level with Biblical marriage would never grant the same status for the KKK philosophy and racial equality. Nor should they. Yet when Biblical truth is shown to be in disagreement with certain liberal stands we are accused of being intolerant. Truth is the new hate speech.
As Christians we must continue to speak the truth in love.
