The TRAP Of Toleration

                                The TRAP Of Toleration
 
 
 
    The majority of Christians today are seduced to incline to their ideas and good intentions which they have exalted to the place of Scripture. This is why tolerance of ideology over theology amongst many believers is the norm and even considered spiritual... yet, unaware they are trapped in a deadly web of toleration.
    Why is this so dangerous? It is dangerous because this trend will not be reversed. It will wax worse and worse {2 Timothy 4:3,4}. On the stage of society; tolerance is a significant reason why it is nearly impossible to note the difference between a Christian and a Religious Sinner.
The real danger of tolerance is the elevating attitude that the Bible is an alternative means and not the absolute and exclusive means of presenting the revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ. Many are now calling the Bible a mere representation of Christ and not the REVELATION of the Lord Jesus Christ. 
Are you tolerating your ideas, good intentions, and your personal preferences?   If so, you will find yourself mute about the convicting power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That is very dangerous! 
    The backlash of tolerance is seen in that many Believers are increasingly weary and faint and are seeking asylum in a state of mute.   Our silence is Satan's victory.  It should be noted that Satan is a powerful enemy... yet, he is not our number one problem...  it is the enmity of our hearts that is inclined to tolerate ideas and intentions over the Word of God and will work to weaken the spiritual vitality of the Church slowly, but surely.    Tolerance is not silent; it is enthusiastically vocal and fervently demanding of a split loyalty {James 1:8}. Tolerance is nothing more than an exercise of pretension that will certainly breed contention against God's demands for absolute loyalty and obedience. The only ambition worth our submission is not the pursuit of tolerance, but one of obedience to the Word of God.
    Now let me give you a prime example of what is going on today in many if not all denominations, in the arena of tolerance. Which is the allowance of woman to hold the place of authority in the church.
