“'Tolerance' Is A Dirty Word”
Tolerance as a word alone does not mean anything bad or wrong, however in American cultural context as compared to God's Word, indeed it is a negative. For many years now, American's have allowed themselves to tolerate evil to the point of bringing on God's judgment and destruction of a land many American’s still refer to as “the land of the free, and the home of the brave.” In all truth, America is no longer free and certainly not home of the brave. If anything, America is deeply bound to acceptance and involved in what the Bible calls sin. If bravery is a supposed to be a character of every(or the majority) American Citizen, well, then most American's sadly fail that test if that is of being compared to standing up tough against what God calls sin. Let's be honest, the majority of Americans are willing to accept just about anything attitude and illicit behaviour around them no matter how evil it might be, as long as it doesn't personally impact upon them. There is even a political movement and political party in the USA dedicated to such an idea. It's called Libertarianism. You may know two popular Libertarian's involved in politics right now , that being Ron Paul and his son Rand. Both project an laissez-faire attitude when it comes towards confronting what the Bible calls sin and evil. They are very open to the ideals of “personal liberty as long as it does not interfere with others.” In fact, both (purposely I suspect) completely ignore the many writings our American Fore-Father's writings and even warnings on the importance of utilizing the Bible in maintaining our Republic through Godly (Biblical)principles. The problem with Libertarianism and those like them who ignore sin, end up with the same consequences of those who engage in acts of evil that Libertarians say that they disagree with, even hate. In fact, many Libertarians are well known for their vicious defense of their beliefs, even attacking others who disagree with them, so much for “tolerance.” Of course it is not only Libertarians who tolerate evil. There are plenty of Democrats, Republicans, Liberals and Conservatives as well who engage in and tolerate evil as well.
Do you remember at some point in your life seeing photo's or cartoons of the three monkeys with the phrases under them that stated “'see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”? That is a perfect word picture for what tolerance means in America today. That sort of attitude of tolerating evil has landed our nation in hot water. By purposely closing our eyes ears and refusing to call out against evil as well as refusing to take righteous action against evil, many Americans' have tolerated sin altogether and brought upon
It's too bad so many Christians and American's haven't figured out that when evil people call out to be “tolerated”, those that say such things, really mean they want control and to totally wipe-out anything at all good, moral, decent or Godly. One only has to look at how far reaching homosexuality has become in America to see exactly what I am sharing about here. It was only in 1969 that homosexuality was still considered a mental illness by secularists. Later that same year however, and as America was rejecting God to a tipping point, it was the American Psychological Association that back peddled on their diagnosis of homosexuality as a mental disease due to political(not scientific) pressure and to no longer carry http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/07/supreme-court-gay-wedding-photography_n_5104699.html) and of the cake maker who refused to make a cake for a homosexual couple(http://www.advocate.com/business/2014/01/08/california-caterer-refuses-serve-gay-wedding-over-christian-beliefs). Homosexuals want all Americans to be tolerant of their sinful lifestyle but if one has a hint of a personal rejection or to claim the Christian Bible to be their guide, then homosexuals will force those to object accept homosexuality anyway.
Today, because “tolerance” has leaked into every crevasse of American society, “anything goes.” Not only is it the ungodly act in the name of “tolerance” homosexuality being forced upon us, also radical Islam(those who want to kill us because we are not Muslims) is also on the rise, and so are other evils such as Religious Cults, Peadohilia, Feminism(the purposeful killing and destruction of men, fathers and boys)and
Your personal liberty, your religious beliefs, your foolish tolerance of evil count for nothing good before God of the Bible. I give you all fair warning now, if you do not immediately(not next week, next month, etc) cease tolerating sin, then the loss of life, liberty and further destruction upon America(and other nations who also tolerate evil) and will continue, and all who tolerate evil will as well continue to be judged harshly as well. There is no doubt that those who are allowed to engage in evil and pursue evil will grow worse unless you STOP tolerating them ALL now. God is a patient God, yes He is but there comes a tipping point and if you are at all just the least bit knowledgeable in the Bible, you know that God's tipping point has already begun.
