Is it your contention that Christians have been too tolerant?
Ryan Dobson: Absolutely. And Christians are the only ones asked to be tolerant in this culture. The homosexuals are not asked to be tolerant. Only Christians are asked to put aside their views, put aside their opinions, not speak up, not stand out. We�re asked to sit back and take a back seat to the rest of the culture. And it�s time that we stood up for what we believe in.
LEE WEBB: Well, let me give you a chance to demonstrate your intolerance, if you will. I want to show you and our viewers, comments made by folks we�ve seen in the news in recent months. The first comment comes from Reverend Joan Campbell Brown, former head of the National Council of Churches. Our reporter asked her if she believes that it�s only through the person and work of Jesus Christ that one can have eternal life. Let�s take a look at what she had to say.
Joan Campbell Brown: For me, the way to God, the way to peace is through Jesus Christ. That�s what I teach my children. That�s what I teach my grandchildren. And I believe that very, very strongly. But I also believe that for others there is a way that for them is true and precious. And I don�t deny them that reality, and I respect that.
LEE WEBB: All right, Ryan. How would you respond to her?
Ryan Dobson: Lee, I hear this thing so often. Someone says, “I believe this very strongly for myself, just not for anybody else.” I really believe they don�t believe it strongly for themselves. I believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven. I believe it strongly for myself. I believe it for everybody else, too. And I tell people, “If you don�t believe that you�re going to go to hell.” Being the president of the National Council for Churches she ought to preach that. She ought to tell everybody that. Muslims are not going to Heaven. It is a sad fact, but it is also true. And you�ve got to tell people that, not out of pride or arrogance, but out of love. Because I care about people, I�ve got to tell them what is true. And the truth is the only way into Heaven is through Christ.
