Everything on Confident Christians is done in black and white - images, fonts, etc. Why? Because it represents our view on matters of faith and life. We believe absolute truth exists and that anything opposed to real truth is false. In other words, things are black and white. When the post-modernist and pluralist world says that everything is true and that no single/absolute truth exists, it really fails to face reality and think logically.
One of the first principles of logic is the law of the excluded middle, which says that something is either A or Non-A. The object of the discussion simply cannot be both at the same time and in the same sense. For example, the wall is either blue or it is not (there is no middle choice). Some have tried to defeat the law of the excluded middle by arguing that the wall could be a multitude of colors, but they miss the simple point that if the wall were any color other than blue, the wall would still be non-blue.
Hence, this is why any middle option is excluded and only two choices really exist.
When you really examine the doctrines of all faiths, they all have exclusivist beliefs, which means each believes it has the single source of truth about God and all other faiths opposed to it are false. Pluralists contend that all religions are true, however those holding to this belief fail to see they are actually adhering to the law of the excluded middle because they are in effect saying that pluralism is true and all forms of non-pluralism (such as Christianity and Islam) are false. Such a claim is self-defeating as it is really an exclusive claim. Further, any pluralist, when pressed, would be unlikely to admit that the beliefs of the Ku Klux Klan, hard-core Satanists, and other like belief systems are true.
This means that if you are going to attempt and try to think critically, you must take a side and commit yourself to either pluralism/inclusivism or to the words spoken by Jesus.
In other words, things are pretty black and white.
