Contention in Preaching

K. Douglas Bassett

Hel. 3:1, 33; 4:1, 11, 23-24; refer in this text to 3 Ne. 11:28-30

“There are some of other faiths who do not regard us as Christians… . I hope we do not argue over this matter. There is no reason to debate it… . We must not become disagreeable as we talk of doctrinal differences… . We can respect other religions, and must do so… . We must teach our children to be tolerant and friendly toward those not of our faith… . A holier-than-thou attitude is not becoming to us.” (Gordon B. Hinckley, Ensign, May 1998, pp. 4-5)
