The Hate of Christian Intolerance of Other Gods

It is significant that one of Chamberlain’s (and Hitler’s) chief objections to the Jewish concept of God was its “intolerance.”  This is one of the main objections to traditional Christianity currently being raised by secularists today.  To state that there is one true God, whether Jewish or Christian, and that to believe in him and obey him is the only right way of life condemns all other religions and human endeavors.  This excites the animosity of those who, like Chamberlain, rely on themselves alone.  The humanists (whose views may be expressed in religious language) hate to be told that their views are wrong.  Thus they despise the intolerant people who presume to assert that there is only one way.  This is because of their guilty consciences, and because of fear that their lives are based on a false foundation.  As Jesus said, “The world cannot hate you: but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the worlds thereof are evil.”
