Truth Rules Out Tolerance for Untruth

Each gain in tolerance is a loss in truth. This is a statement that is not politically correct, but it is true and the truth is what counts for people of faith.

 Here is a quote by Norman Geisler that explains it well. "Non-Christians often complain that Christians are narrow-minded because they claim Christianity is true and all non-Christian systems are false. However, the same is true of non-Christians who claim that their view is true and all opposing beliefs are false. Their position is equally narrow. The truth of the matter is that if C (Christianity) is true, then it follows that all non-C is false. Likewise, if H (say, humanism) is true, then all non-H is false. Both views are equally narrow. That's the way truth is. Whenever anyone makes a truth claim, he has thereby claimed that whatever opposes it is false. Christianity is no more narrow than any other belief system that claims to be true, whether atheism, agnosticism, skepticism, or pantheism."
