Tolerance: Virtue or Vice?

There is a "gospel of tolerance" being preached by some and ascribed to by many these days.  Do the Bible and Christian principles require tolerance?  If so, to what extent?  This PowerPoint lesson seeks to examine the true meaning of tolerance (is it the same as "acceptance"), whether or not love and compassion require it as currently defined by society, and how "tolerance" is treated in the Scriptures. (After downloading, please view in the "Presentation" mode to see all of the material included.)

 

Four Hundred, Ninety-One

I’ve never really had a “lucky” number- figured those were for folks who like to gamble.  I haven’t really even had a “favorite” number- it seemed kind of pointless, I suppose.  While I still don’t have a “lucky” number, I do now have a “favorite” one!  It has taken me roughly fifty years to decide that my favorite number is 491!

Men’s One-Day Study: “The Selection, Appoinment, and Duties of Elders”

This material was presented as a part of our twice a year Men's One-Day Study.  The study was originally designed for preachers, but is open to any men interested in men interested in study God's word in a more advanced way.  This particular study was presented in hopes of meeting three objectives: 1) to provide a clear view of the qualifications as a whole, and their overall purpose;  2)to help alleviate some of the controversy centered around the understanding and application of the "family" qualifications; and, 3) to address the often neglected aspects of the duties and responsibilities of serving as an Elder.  As such, the class did not go through the qualifications one by one.  The material is about 35 pages in Word format.

Daily Verse

“[The Birth of Jesus] In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.”

- Luke 2:1, 4-5
