Tolerance vs Truth


The above video, filmed at the University of Washington, is a glimpse into the minds of today’s college students. In our culture, students around the nation have become convinced that men who identify as women have the right to use the women’s restrooms or that there should be “gender neutral” restrooms.

One question that certainly arises from watching the video, “Are our youth confused about more than gender?”

An even more poignant question is this? Does tolerance mean accepting the idea that there are no absolutes, there is no truth, and we should allow anyone to be, say, or do whatever they please?

Is it an intolerant idea to tell a 6′ tall Anglo-Saxon male that he is not a 5′ tall Oriental woman?

I wonder if these same students would tolerate me if I decided that I am a professor at Washington University and that it is a Bible College? Would they allow me to stand and preach from the Bible for 50 minutes?

    No one is commenting on this post. I don’t know if people are just not reading it, they think it is stupid, or perhaps it is baffling to know there are those who stray so far from accepting that absolutes exists. For me, it raises many questions, but it also shows what happens to a society that has abandoned the very concept of truth. The video causes me to wonder? IF truth, in their minds, doesn’t matter and reality doesn’t exist, does that swing both ways with these people or is it only for those with whom they are in agreement? Another question – If they do not believe in absolutes and/or truth, why are they offended by the message of Christ and the Bible? Why is this the only message they cannot tolerate?

    Here is a part of what the Bible says about truth:

    Psalm 119:160 The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.

    Jesus said while praying to the Father: John 17:17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.

    John 1:14, 17 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth…For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

    Among the many “I Am” statements that Jesus made we find: John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
