Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C.

9:37 PM - The Only Good Christian is an Intolerant Christian

Tolerance has led to the destruction of America. Lives are ruined because of tolerance of immorality. Souls go to hell because of tolerance of pagan beliefs. Health is lost because of tolerance of poisons in food and water.

Would the government tolerate you not paying taxes? Would space probes reach their mark with even the slightest tolerance of course error? Would your meals even be edible with tolerance of improper temperatures? If human society is intolerant of all things unrelated to religion and morality why is this the exception? God is 100% intolerant of sin. That's why Jesus came. If he weren't intolerant heaven would not be heaven. Those that preach tolerance are usually the most intolerant of truth.

I am 100% Intolerant

I have “tolerated” this whole tolerance term long enough, and today I've decided to speak up about it.

Before I tell you why I am against the concept—it's probably best that we all get on the same page—definition-wise.

Tolerance. We've all heard about. Over and over and over again. It's the hot topic, it's the popular term. It's that little buzz word that gives you a social stamp of approval.

This word gets thrown around way too often, and no one really seems to grasp its meaning. We live in a world where “tolerance” is actually one-sided. Standing up for what you believe in is only “tolerated” when it agrees with popular opinion. We praise those who state how they feel on an issue…only when it's what we also believe, of course. Well, that's not tolerance, that's approval. That's just agreeing.

True Tolerance, by definition, only exists when one person disagrees with another, and yet chooses to permit/accept the other person's view or belief.

Tolerance as it is used today does not actually tolerate two opinions. Tolerance is reserved for those who high five each other's opinions, not accept each other's differences. If tolerance were really tolerance, those who so proudly claim it wouldn't be attacking the intolerant.

The Sin of Tolerance

by Billy Graham [Really? Look how tolerant he was of Vatican led ecumenism and the inroads of consumerized contemporary Christianity. Nevertheless this is a good commentary.]

One of the pet words of this age is tolerance. It is a good word, but we have tried to stretch it over too great an area. We have applied it, too often, where it does not belong. The word tolerant means liberal and broad-minded. In one sense, it implies the compromise of one’s convictions, a yielding of ground upon important issues.

We have become tolerant about divorce, the use of alcohol, delinquency, wickedness in high places, immorality, crime and godlessness. We have been sapped of conviction, drained of our beliefs, and we are bereft of our faith.

The sciences, however, are narrow-minded. There is no room for careless broad-mindedness in the laboratory. Water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit at sea level; it is never 100 degrees nor 189 degrees, nor 211. Fresh water freezes at 32 degrees; it is never 23 degrees nor 31.

Mathematics is also narrow-minded. The sum of two plus two is four, never three-and-a-half. Geometry is narrow-minded. It says that a straight line is the shortest distance between two points on a plane.  A compass is narrow-minded; it always points to the magnetic north. If it were broad-minded, ships at sea and planes in the air would be in danger.

If you should ask a man the directions to New York City and he said, “Oh, just take any road you wish, they all lead to New York,” you would question both his sanity and his truthfulness.  Nevertheless, we have somehow gotten it into our minds that “all roads lead to Heaven.”

But Jesus Christ, who journeyed from Heaven to Earth and back to Heaven again, who knew the way better than anyone who ever lived, said, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).
