On Tolerance

Chuck Bumgardner: Andrew Fuller and Tolerance


Fuller argued that “toleration was a legal permission not only to enjoy your own principles unmolested, but to make use of all the fair means of persuasion to recommend them to others”
Comment: More from DA Carson's book The Intolerance of Tolerance (p 98)

I make no apologies for my Christian position:
  • Jesus: "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6)
  • "He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." (John 3:18)
  • "He who has seen Me has seen the Father" (John 14:9)
  • "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12)


  1. Definition of Tolerance: "the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with."

    Sad to see that you don't understand how to exist with opinions you don't agree with.

  2. Au contraire: I exist with a lot of opinions I don't agree with!. Democrats, Muslims, etc.
