“Tolerance justifies me doing what I want and not getting blamed for it.”Why is tolerance such a popular virtue? It is a kind of twist on the Golden Rule. “Don’t criticize any behavior that you might not want criticized.” Or, “I will overlook your depravity is you ignore my perversion.”
Tolerance in its original definition was a virtue. To exist in civil society there are many quirks and foibles that we need to be willing to endure in good humor. Tolerance can be the oil that keeps friction within operating temperature. But it has been extended with the “Judge not” generation to include things that should not be tolerated.
Keep in mind that God may forgive sin but He does not tolerate it. He also reserves the right to determine what is sin and what isn’t.
Sorry if that bursts your bubble.
