We are told to be tolerant. Suppose I went to the best restaurant in town and later you asked me, “How was the restaurant?” What would you think if I said, “It was tolerable?” We are taught not to be prejudiced. However, if we weren’t prejudiced we would all be driving 62 Ramblers; I had one and it’s not a great car. Because we are prejudiced we choose what is best: The way to work, schools, clothes, food, programs, etc.
There is a bumper sticker that uses religious symbols to spell out the word “COEXIST.” It means all religions lead to God so don’t be prejudiced, and tolerate other views. However, if two religions hold opposing points of views then both can’t be right. For example, Hindus believe in many Gods and Christianity believes in only one God. Both beliefs cannot be right; one has to be wrong.
Jesus said, “I’m the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). There is no way to coalesce his statement with other religions. When it comes to your eternity, you had better not be tolerant, and you had better be prejudiced.
