This is a repost of a really important article authored by J Warner Wallace from his coldcasechristianity.com website that speaks to the requirement for tolerance. There are three particular sentences in Jim’s post that I’m going to directly quote before providing you with the link to his excellent article and the three sentences read as follows:
“It’s OK to hate a bad idea, as long as we remember that we are called to love those who hold bad ideas. I can reject a worldview yet still be “fair, objective, and permissive” toward those who hold this worldview. How I react toward people is what defines me as tolerant, not how I react toward ideas.”
I’ll admit, understanding and adhering to the difference between how we react to people and the ideas that they may expound upon is not always easy, but it is necessary.
Here’s the link to Jim’s article, really important, hope you read it!
