In a pluralist culture, opposing groups not only coexist side by side, a great many of them consider qualities of other groups as traits worth having in the dominant culture. For example, a community center in the West may offer classes in Indian yoga, Chinese calligraphy, and Latin salsa dancing. That same community may also have one or more synagogues, mosques, mandirs, gurudwaras, and/or Buddhist temples, as well as several churches of various Christian denominations. The mere fact that such diversity is legal, however, has confused many — from inside as well as outside the church — into thinking that legality is synonymous with plausibility or validity. For this reason, the June issue of Tabletalk seeks to warn its readers of the dangers inherent in a pluralistic society for those who claim the exclusivity of Jesus the Christ.
