"YOU ARE SO INTOLERANT"
Somebody sent an email asking me to stop being intolerant.
There are no tolerant people. Those who think they are tolerant will not tolerate intolerance. By not admitting intolerance, they are also in that category. Those who think themselves tolerant in religious affairs are useless to defend them. Moreover, when one is useless to defend his convictions, he is not even tolerant of anything. In this way, the more one insists on doing what he is called to do, the more intolerant he becomes in the eyes of those who call themselves tolerant for doing nothing. Eventually, the scenario turns into one of mutual intolerance.
If a person tells me to be tolerant, there's already a pronounced degree of intolerance from the opposition party. If I adhere to the call to be tolerant, I am surrendering to the tolerant's intolerance, turning myself useless in the cause where I was called intolerant. When I turn useless to myself, I join the group of those useless tolerant proplr who detest anything intolerant in intolerant matters. Both extremes are not possible at one time.
I am intolerant to those who are intolerant to intolerance. That is, because I see so many pretending tolerance in matters where tolerating tolerance is intolerable, being intolerant is the right way. Now, being rightly intolerant to wrong tolerance is tolerable. Therefore, an intolerant is also tolerant when a tolerant is intolerant to his tolerance. Put another way, I will not tolerate the tolerant's tolerance when he does not tolerate my intolerance to the tolerant. I can call him to stop being intolerably tolerant because that is intolerable!
I was called to stop being intolerant.
You see, modern "bibles" have something to say about this. If one reads Romans 2:4, one finds the most astonishing fact about God Almighty: He is tolerant!
2:3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and
doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
The NIV changes the KJV word "forbearance" to "tolerant".
He was not tolerant before 1611. Where God had forbearance, he is now tolerant.
Don't tell me this is not a major shift, or facelift, or turnabout of God as we have never seen before in history.
I want to find the man, or bible teacher, or university, or catholic scholar who discovered such an astonishing fact about the Almighty. That must have been such a revelation, don't you think?
Can you imagine Judas Iscariot being allowed in heaven due to this new tolerant approach to betrayal? The fact is, Jesus was totally indolent of Judas' evil presence that he asked him to leave the room before giving the disciples the Lord's Supper.
Now, don't you, please, come along and tell me that tolerance is a synonym with forbearance. I have no patience to tolerate that! Why would God change to tolerance when before forbearance produced the results He is normally pleased with: repentance and obedience?
Forbearance is God's ability to wait for the sinner to repent. We will be a bit Calvinist in this. God predestined this man to be conformed to the image of his son in before the foudation of the world. God knows the sinner will come along eventually, but God cannot toleate his sin and accept him as is. The sinner must hear the Gospel, REPENT, and turn to Christ and God. THEN, God tolerates him.
If God were to just tolerate everyone, then Jesus would not have needed to go to the Cross and die for our sins, we would not need to be born again, and we could just go on being wicked. God, bless his big dumb uncle heart, would just tolerate us all the way into heaven one day. That god is a devil from the New Age Movement and the Whiskeypalian Church.
I say, tolerance on the part of God will certainly generate SIN and disobedience, whereas forbearance produces repentance and submission.
Read the verse above, and see if the means justify the end. The means of repentance is not forbearance OR tolerance. Forbearance LEADETH you to repentance. The means of repentance is the love of God.
If you ever wanted undisputable proof that modern bible versions come directly from Satan, Romans 2:4 is it!
Think in reverse. Was God not happy with the old black Book portraying Him with forbearance? Did God now reveal His true divine nature to those who swapped one word with another?
Now! Being God Almighty tolerant, why does He require repentance? Do you see Satan repeating his old question in Genesis 3:1?
That's the way the old serpent spits poisonous venom right in your eyes and blinds you, when you open and accept new bible versions!
My friend: tolerance is the same as lukewarm (Rev 3:16). How can God contradict the terms and condemn one while tolerating the other?!
In other words, the humanistic philosophy calling us to "be positive and share your tolerance" is like allowing poisonous snakes free roaming in our houses.
Can you believe the utter dishonesty of church pastors who you thought were trustworthy and dignified when, in fact, they were betraying the foundations of your most sacred convictions? Would your pastor tolerate a 10 or 20 degree tilting in the building of the church house and still insist that it will never fall to the ground and that it is safe to meet in it?
God Almighty being tolerant is in line for a fight with His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Sounds like blasphemy, does it not?
Well, if God will tolerate Judas Iscariot back with the apostles in heaven, the Lord will have reason to ask why He had to go to the cross and suffer and die for the sins of mankind, while there was another route to avoid the cry "O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me".
Cynical, is it not, if, after all, God had a divine attribute called "TOLERANCE".
It appears that it had not yet been revealed to bible translators until the NIV came along! By the way, Judas would, in time, conspire and launch a coup in heaven, installing himself as second in chief to Satan. World history tells us that when the king toleates insurrection, he is one day hanged, and another man is king in his place.
You see, if God is a tolerating divinity, the whole gospel teaching, as we know it, is nothing but a complete farce. Islam turns out to be a better proposition, for the simple fact that its "scriptures" have never been revised, modernized and tampered with (they tell me), to allow its god some tolerance attribute.
The thing is that if God would ever tolerate the word "tolerance" attached to His divine credentials (as it appears in Romans 2:4, NIV, etc.), Sodom and Gomorrah could sue God for reparations.
Think about it.
Could God have mellowed from his nature in the Old Testament? What does the Bible say?
Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
God has never been tolerant, and he never will be. God can ONLY respond to repentance. Until he sees that, he is forbearing, waiting, and sending the witness of the Gospel to sinners to call them to salvation. Sin must stay sin. Filthy men must stay filthy until they repent. The forbearance of God prevents him from popping every brat baby born right into hell the first time he throws his bottle in rage and screams. And, it is a cruel parent who lets the kid get away with it, that is, who tolerates it. The kid needs to understand from the get go that his rage is sin so that one day the kid will want to be delivered from sin and repent before God.
Just tolerating a little, will lead God to have a skirmish with His Son, the fallen angels will take revenge, and Satan will install himself in power. Most probably, the whole universe will catch fire and burn "to the ground".
Let us consider one more thought. What does it take to learn tolerance? It takes sin. One must sin and become guilty and refuse to repent of sin. This causes the sinner to feel guilty for judging other sinners of their sin because it is clearly hypocritical. God would have to be a sinner to learn tolerance.
Habakkuk 1:12 Art thou not from everlasting,
O LORD my God, mine Holy One? we shall not die. O LORD, thou hast ordained them
for judgment; and, O mighty God, thou hast established them for correction.
The prophet Habakkuk is calling on God to act upon his eternal holiness and intolerance of sin. Habakkuk wants God to judge evil men and reward them for doing evil. Habakkuk had a much better concept or who God is than your modern bible translators have.
Thank the modern translators (energized by Satan!) for tolerance, and continue to support them with your cash!
