BEING TOLERANT

 

          We had best get ready for the new world order of “Tolerance in Diversity”. The horizon reeks with media forecasts of the need for all religions to be equally acceptable to all persons so that wars will be brought to an end.

          This is a noble thought. However, the media and secular powers advancing this movement will admit that it is an unworkable concept. The real purpose behind it lies in the fulfillment the prophetic Word of God that there would be a continuance of the persecution of Christians, who have suffered and will suffer until the culmination of the Faith and its final cataclysmic conclusion.

          And what is the reason for this persecution? Simply put, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” (John 3:19 KJV) No one wants to be found guilty of anything they believe and perform, so they will do all in their power to be shown innocent by changing the laws that have convicted them.

          Their enemies are first, the Truth, and secondly the Law. These lovers of darkness have attacked the Truth by a work of confusion. God’s Word is true, and ever will be, so the attack against Truth must be against His Word; “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? (Genesis 3:1 KJV) So it was then, and so it is still today. The powers of darkness will always question God’s authority. Today it is being done by the profusion of “Bibles” on the market. “Yea, did God say this is the Bible, or that?” These purveyors of so-called Bibles and religious materials for distribution among God’s people have caused the expected confusion worldwide. Just as Eve was deceived in her day, so it is today. Just as Eve tempted Adam to share the fruit with her, so today, those who buy from the “Bible Fruit Stands” all manner of fruit, tempt others to partake, or at least to be tolerant of these “New (old) Fruits”.

          So, the first step in demands for tolerance is well under way, “A Tolerance For Error”, we will call this, since those of darkness do not know the Truth and assume no one else does, they will conclude that there really is no single, final Truth and that we must all tolerate what others believe to be the Truth, and so we shall have peace, ending religious wars and local arguments. In this system, all faiths can be under one plan of peace as set forth by the United Nations. Christians are to be tolerant of Islam, Islam tolerant of Israel, Judaism tolerant of Christ. Can we really believe this to be a possibility? Well, only if we get rid of the intolerant ones. Who are they? Christians and Jews, of course, because they will not tolerate evil in their homes.

          Now for the second step, the Law. Laws must be changed to require that all people tolerate one another within the bounds of social justice. Once we are “enlightened” to the fact that there is no singular truth, and therefore no final authority, we must now allow freedoms necessary for the personal desires of people to manifest their moral standards openly, in and out of the home, without reproach from any religious organization or local authority. This would need to be done by cleaning the law books of such local ordinances as “Blue Laws” and other similar laws. Then new laws would need to be added that will reverse or redirect the discarded laws.

          We know that internationally in the West, laws have come from God’s Word, the Holy Bible, as distributed throughout the world which was colonized by the European nations in the middle ages. In the East there are a number of religions which influence their national laws. Because of these differences, it will be necessary to establish laws that will be accepted internationally yet satisfy the requirements of tolerance in these nations.

          This of course cannot be done without some central authority such as an accepted world ruler, one who will dictate this “Tolerance in Diversity”. This will require that the ruler be against the Holy Bible, God’s Word; that he be anti-Christ, the ruler of darkness who preaches “freedom” through tolerance.

          It is interesting to note that God’s Word tells us that the Truth will make us free, and that He will write His laws in our heart, and that His children will fulfill the law through the indwelling Christ and the Holy Ghost of God.

          “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” (Hebrews 9:27 KJV) So, from God’s Word it is evident that those who are in darkness will have to wait until after they die before they will know the truth of their condition. The peddlers of  these lies will have accomplished their end, but will have suffered the same fate themselves, too late for repentance; too late to learn anew; too late to warn others; too late to cry for mercy. “Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.” (2 Timothy 3:8 A\KJV)

          The very persons who object to Christians sharing the Gospel of Christ are in all the world preaching their own “gospel” of darkness. Eve is still listening to the serpent today, and she will always will be, and Adam will be eating with her. The wages of this sin is still spiritual death and an eternal Hell.

          As you read this and are not sure where you fit into this picture, please be sure that Jesus Christ can provide the Truth to you if you will diligently seek to know Him, for He has told us that He is the Truth; “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6 KJV) He will lead you to the Father, whom if you receive, having repented of your old ways of sin, will give you eternal life. Your  sins will all be forgiven through the blood sacrifice of His only begotten Son, Jesus. Also, the indwelling Spirit of Truth will be yours along with the Spirit of Christ. With God living in you, you shall know the Truth and be freed from Satan’s darkness and lies.
