Tolerance and Patience

Tolerance and Patience

    All the posts by popular facebook preachers talking about intolerance and compromisers has led me to heart sickness. Christianity is not about pointing out the flaws with every false way, and trying to root out the "compromisers" and the "tolerants" amongst our midst. It's about pointing to Christ as the only way, and leaving it to the Lord to sort out the tares from the wheat. The hunt for heresy, tolerance, and compromise, leads to an out of balance Christianity, if it can even be called that. I'm fearful for the heresy hunters that for them it's about worshipping knowledge and being in the right "camp" instead of serving the Lord in humility and gladness. What is missing from their teachings is LOVE. Even posting something like this will get me branded as a "tolerant." Well I will tell you right now, I'd rather be labeled as a tolerant than an intolerant. For it was the Lord who was tolerant of the likes of me! "Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?" - Rom 2:4 (NASB)
