Dr. Alex McFarland is a renowned expert in Christian apologetics (one who explains and rationally defends faith). He is the author of many books including the devotional book series for teens: Stand: Seeking the Way of God; Stand: Unleashing the Wisdom of God and Stand: Diving Into God’s Words.

Dr. McFarland served as the president of Southern Evangelical Seminary in North Carolina, and has spent over two decades training teens and adults in biblical worldview reasoning, much of that time working with Focus on the Family.

Last September, Heartsong Church in Cordova, Tennessee, let members from the Memphis Islamic Center hold Ramadan prayers. Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Alexandria, Virginia, allows the Islamic Circle of North America to hold regular Friday prayers at their facility while a new mosque is being built.

While respect and tolerance are certainly biblical virtues, are the two churches mentioned above examples that cross a line leading into unbiblical affirmation and endorsement? Can we share a platform with those of other beliefs as long as we aren’t doing it in the sense that we believe that all beliefs are valid?

From discussion of youth groups and sanctuaries to reverence for worship, our slipping standards in these areas all point to why many in Christianity are tolerating heretical speakers and philosophies in their churches today.
