  • I think at this point you know how I feel about tolerance. TO me, if you aren't tolerant of others you shouldn't expect anyone to be tolerant of you. We live in a world full of millions of different lifestyle types - religious and non-religious - and every single person no matter their religion or lifestyle they are all equal. On the inside we all bleed red and that's really all that matters! We are all human, and there is simply no reason to be anything but tolerant of others. We should simply treat people the way we would want to be treated and learn to ignore the "differences" we may have in favor of all the things we have in common...

  • It may not do much, but I signed the pledge to fight intolerance here

    Too many people confuse tolerance with acceptance. You do not have to accept the other person's beliefs or lifestyle but you should show respect and tolerance (understanding) that they have the same right as you to believe whatever they choose.

  • That's some serious self-loathing going on. Beyond religious tradition, it's still a cultural one. Even if they can't respect the religious aspect, they should still have some for their own heritage.

  • Agree with SpiritedWitch; people do confuse tolerance with acceptance - maybe that's really the issue? Respect and understanding that others believe differently is the key to having peace.

  • but it also can cause a body part to die and each of these arteries supply life to that body part.. you basically end up slowly killing the Body of Christ. What NEEDS to happen is that you do not have to accept that particular belief but you can agree to disagree and become unified and then you have no need to clamp that artery. This results in healthier relationships and stronger support and blood flow which brings a stronger body!
    When we clamp we become intolerant and block the flow but when we are tolerant we tend to live rather than die. Love is the key and Love wins everytime ( His Love that flows from the Heart of God. )

  • Scuba: Exactly I think the isues is knowing the difference between tolerance.

    Here is an example in the church. Many churches are different streams but all streams come from the main river that flows from the throne of God. The problem is many different churches believe that if another group does not believe the things they do ( regardless if the foundational believe is Jesus Christ is Lord and He died and rose from the dead) then they should not associate with them and cut them off. This was not the intent of Jesus and Gospel. Unity is huge and very lacking in many parts of the Body of Christ as a whole and because of this it effects everyone.
    Think of a heart .. the heart is the Heart of Jesus and the arteries are the different ministries and each ministry believes different things but if there is disagreement and you decide to clamp that artery, it not only slows down the blood flow continued....
