Tolerance has become a buzzword in both the political and religious spheres of this world. Similarly, the word “intolerance” has become a weapon used against those who disagree with the popular thinking of the time. But are we truly commanded by God to be “tolerant?” In this lesson, Dr. Mark Lantz examines Jesus’ reaction to the popular beliefs of His time to help us determine the proper definition of biblical tolerance and what it means to stand up for what we know to be right.
(Life on Purpose is a teaching series from Dr. Mark Lantz designed to take practical and relevant truths from the Word of God and empower us to live a full life in Christ. Dr. Lantz covers many topics using scriptural principles and encouragement to give us a firm foundation to face the trials and obstacles that can so easily hinder and divert us from the path of blessing that God has for each of us.)
(Dr. Lantz and his wife, Crystal, are lead pastors of Christian Center Church in South Bend, Indiana.)
