Do you really think that tolerance is not part of the bible and christianity, Joe?
Oh, I suppose it's mentioned in there somewhere, but tolerance isn't really a tenet of faith for either Jews or Christians. Any notion that tolerance of other faiths and religions is a Christian duty is not drawn from a strict reading of the bible.
Do you really think that to love God above all else does not include tolerance?
No, why should it? Love of God above all else means just that: love of God above all else. I see nothing in there about tolerance.
To love God above all else means to put God and his grace first. Do you really think that He meant for man to treat others badly if he would treat himself badly?
God wants everyone to treat their neighbors as themselves. Interpret that injunction as you may.
One would assume that one would treat himself with the utmost dignity, respect, love and tolerance. Do you really think that the bible presents this otherwise?
Yes. The bible certainly does not
expect people to treat themselves with tolerance if they have deviated from the path of God. Those people are supposed to return to the faith or suffer the consequences: that doesn't sound like tolerance, that sounds like Rev. Lovelace.
Do you really think that God is a false idol?
I remain uncommitted.
