For the upright will inhabit the land, and those with integrity will remain in it, but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the treacherous will be rooted out of it. – Proverbs 2:21-22~~ It is so easy to compromise on the Word of God and call it tolerance and inclusion. Even in the church, a person who is not tolerant of anything, and against the Word, is often condemned as being “Unchristian.” The argument for tolerance is that Jesus was tolerant of all sinners – and that is correct. However, don’t forget that Jesus freely accepted, loved and hung out with sinners; He never tolerated their sin. Whether He was speaking to the religious hypocrites, the genuine truth-seeker or the general populace, His message was always, “Repent,” and, “Go and sin no more,” He makes no bones about the fact that sin cannot exist with God (Mat 13:41-42.) We must be very careful to guard the Word of God and speak its truth without compromise. Don’t gloss over it with lies about tolerance of sin. Only through Christ can anyone be saved. All who are without Him are doomed to pay. There is no in-between.
