Our Context

“We live in a pluralistic age in which the greatest sin is ‘intolerance,’ born from the conviction that truth is exclusive. Our world hates ‘binary’ language that states that some things are right or wrong, good or bad, true or false, acceptable or unacceptable. Especially disdained by our ‘tolerant’ world are the exclusive doctrines of grace. There is only one God. He saves only through His Son. His Spirit works only through His Gospel. Excluded from His fellowship are those who will not accept His exclusive claims” (Klemet Preus, The Fire and the Staff [St. Louis: Concordia, 2004, 273].
