Guard Against Intolerance

Guard Against Intolerance

Ac 10:34 NKJV    “God shows no partiality.”

Tolerance is not just about agreeing to embrace our differences. It’s about accepting the other person’s right to believe as they wish, and to behave according to those beliefs. One of the great tests of spiritual maturity is our willingness to love and pray for those whose beliefs and behaviors are unacceptable to us. Instead of condemning people who err, we should see them the same way we see a blind man walking toward a cliff’s edge. Our reaction should not be to condemn him, but to have compassion and try to show him a safer route. Now let’s be clear; compassion is not compromise, any more than we could accuse God, Who loves sinners and hates sin, of compromise. Why don’t we just emulate our heavenly Father? In Bible days Jews looked down on Gentiles and referred to them as “dogs” (See Mt 15:26-28). But Jesus came and redeemed those “dogs” and turned them into disciples. When Cornelius the Gentile summoned Peter the Jew to his home, Peter was reluctant to go. He explained, “You know how unlawful it is for a Jewish man to keep company or go to one of another nation. But God has shown me that I should not call any man common or unclean” (Ac 10:28 NKJV). God was uprooting embedded traditions and opening up new opportunities for the gospel. Peter continued, “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him” (vv. 34-35 NKJV). Could it be that God wants to expand the borders of your mind for His glory? If you’re open to it, He will bless you.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add
to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your
blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Right now it sounds like Movable Type is the best blogging platform out there right now.

(from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre
talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to
your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring
writers? I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost
on everything. Would you propose starting with a free
platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed
.. Any recommendations? Cheers!
