- Some professing Christians may be narrow-minded and intolerant. But it’s not fair to characterize the intended nature of Christianity based on what particular people do.
- Christianity does make significant truth-claims—claims about God, Jesus, humanity, nature, morality, etc. If something is true in an objective sense—meaning that it’s true whether we agree with it or whether we even know about it—then it’s not intolerant or narrow-minded to communicate it, especially if it’s done in a kind and compassionate way.
- It may not be “politically correct” to claim that there are universal truths—truths for everybody, even when they don’t like them—but if there are such truths about God, Jesus, etc., then Christians are not intolerant in believing and communicating them; they should be commended for caring enough to share them. If a doctor has a true diagnosis of a potentially-terminal disease, that doctor is certainly not intolerant or narrow-minded in telling the patient about it.
