Tolerance is a word used often when discussing other "beliefs" and other lifestyles. It has taken on a new age meaning more to the description of acceptance, rather than it's true meaning.
Miriam-Webster describes tolerance.
Jesus Christ taught us to tolerate, that not all are going to believe on him. This carries a significant weight for us as mortals. We must understand that not all are going to see the light and give their heart to GOD. Christ' teachings however, did not include the acceptance of other beliefs. Yes, they exists. Yes, they are not the true way of GOD. No, you are not to accept those other beliefs as a form of worship toward GOD.1: capacity to endure pain or hardship :2a : sympathy or indulgence for beliefs or practices differing from or conflicting with one's own
"Straight is the path, but narrow is the way" words to live by indeed. In that life we use the teachings of GOD as our sole guiding principle. Nothing else comes close to what we as his children should use as our torch in the darkness. Why then, should we not use those teachings as a guiding principle in our politics. Tolerance has no place in politics. It is a defiant use of an Anti-Christ to push the guiding principle of our lives, GOD, out of our governance.
We must never accept the straying of our leaders away from Christian principle. NEVER!
Hold them accountable for their actions, and pray for divine guidance in their policy making. Let your politicians know that you are watching them, and praying for them. Let them know that you will hold them accountable for their actions.
To tolerate the lifestyles of non believers, is to see that they are straying from GOD, and to pray for the intervention in their life to steer them back toward the Father.
We should never abuse, nor mistreat any individual that can not clearly see the Light, we must do all that we can to show them the true guiding principles that can save their life. The word of GOD.
We as Christians should never accept anything less from ourselves as GOD's children.
