Lots of people think that Christians are intolerant because they’ve heard news reports about them taking stands against certain things that they think are ok, like abortion. Many on both sides are intolerant of anyone who believes differently than themselves.
Followers of Christ are to treat those who disagree with them with love and compassion, not anger and condemnation. This is our reflection of Christ to the world and yet, so many Christians just can’t bring themselves to love someone who disagrees with them politically. Families are being torn apart, friendships ended, because of political views. The world is watching how we treat one another, not just how we treat them.
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." John 13:35
