The world preaches tolerance…but God declares forgiveness.

The world preaches “truth is relative”…but Christ says He is the truth.

The world teaches us shades of gray…God knows there is right and wrong…
sin and death….repentance and forgiveness…

Accepting the world’s view of tolerance and/or outright denial of sin and its consequences (death) will lead many to eternal destruction.

Believe God and live.

One day Jesus said to his disciples, “There will always be temptations to sin,
but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting!
Luke 17:1

Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman,
“Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”
“No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.
John 8:10-11

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one can come to the Father except through me.
John 14:6

But there is a great difference between Adam’s sin and God’s gracious gift.
For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many.
But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness
to many through this other man, Jesus Christ.
Romans 5:15

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God
is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23

If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.
Romans 10:9-10

My dear brothers and sisters, if someone among you wanders away from the truth and is brought back, you can be sure that whoever brings the sinner back
from wandering will save that person from death and
bring about the forgiveness of many sins.
James 5:19-20
