Vague ideals about tolerance must give way to flesh and blood reality

“The love of Jesus is not a pie-in-the-sky ideal for people He
never knew; it was tangible, messy, and ultimately cost him His life. In
Jesus, we see heaven on display in the hell of individual lives. If we seek
to follow Him, vague ideals about tolerance must give way to flesh and
blood reality—loving the all-too-human in front of us.”
