Love, peace, mercy, truth and grace are all of God’s creations that are defined by God. There was a time when these perfect designs, meant something, when His children, Christians, followed the meaning that He gave to them. Do these words exist anymore in The Church, within the body of Christ?
Have all these words been conquered by a creature called ‘tolerance’?
When the Roman Empire became a Christian-only realm in the 4th Century, paganism and heresy was banned within the Empire and within The Church. The Church and The Empire were in harmony with each other and with God. At that time, the definition of love, peace, mercy, truth and grace, all contained attributes such as God’s framework of justice, guidance, correction, judgment and discipline. For love, peace, mercy, truth and grace (God’s 5) to exist, they must all contain God’s definitions.
Yet, whenever a new pagan Emperor and/or a corrupt Church allowed tolerance of morality/religion/belief to exist within or outside its borders, evil was birthed and grew.
When people, countries, politics, courts, and the Church substitutes and dilutes ‘God’s 5’ with man-made attributes such as compromise, freedom, and liberal, then tolerance exists. Corruption, rot, lies, paganism, heresy and war are all by-products of tolerance. History proves it.
Tolerance breeds and grows intolerance towards God and true Christianity.
In history, when tolerance was acceptable within Christianity, nations fell; many tens of millions were martyred and many billions more have and will experience the second death.
”And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:15
Nations such as Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Macedonia, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, and Spain, were all once partially or fully conquered and occupied by Islam, a by-product of Arianism, a by-product of tolerance. Numerous wars were required to be fought over many centuries, to re-establish Christianity to these countries.
The longer it took for the State and The Church to face up to their tolerance and destroy evil that they allowed to spread, the more painful were the wars.
Former Christian nations that fell were not so fortunate. Some have never recovered. Nations such as Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Sudan, Syria, and Turkey, are still controlled by antichrists.
“Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.” 1 John 2:22
Few Christians would disagree with this assessment.
How many would say that every nation on earth is controlled by antichrists?
How many nations on earth are controlled by a true Christian government or the true Church?
A truthful answer would be none.
And… Christians today are almost 100% tolerant in some way, of antichrist doctrines.
“I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:6-8
When the children of God are following God’s will, then His love, peace, mercy, truth and grace flows. These creations save people’s lives when followed correctly. When followed incorrectly through ‘tolerance’, these creations become monsters with pretty masks, that cover over evil, lies, deception, falsehood and death!
I could write an entire book on the evil relative of ‘compromise’ which is ‘tolerance’, however, a blog will have to do for now.
The vast majority of those today who think they are Christians, would be considered heretics, according to God’s standards. The Church structure of a thousand years ago, would exile, imprison or put to death most of those calling themselves Christians today, including the current roman catholic pope, for heretical practices.
A heretic meaning, someone following doctrine contrary to God’s Word.
By God’s standards, today’s Church has become an abomination of toleration.
Statistics and surveys are abundant of what is acceptable today by professed Christians around the world.
How many are tolerant of sin such as sexual immorality, calling it ‘love, mercy and grace’?
How many are tolerant of non-Christian ideologies (i.e. islamism; buddhism; hinduism; humanism; liberalism; unitarianism, etc.), using ‘living in peace’ with them as their reasoning?
How many make up philosophies or ‘cherry-pick’ their personal doctrines from The Bible and call it ‘truth’ (i.e. not operating in the supernatural; being a good person equals salvation; everyone eventually goes to Heaven, etc.)?
All of this tolerance is heresy. It is rebellion.
“And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.” 2 Timothy 2:5
“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.” 1 Samuel 15:23
Acceptance of tolerance is a main culprit of heresy within Christianity.
Whenever a denomination, a ministry, a leader, a person decides to define love, peace, mercy, truth and grace according to their standards, there exists heresy, as these words, outside of God’s standards, breeds tyranny, cruelty, anarchy, war, death and a fake Christianity.
Reject counterfeits and fakes. Resist evil. Don’t tolerate them.
Only God’s path will bring you into His Kingdom.
