Who really is intolerant?
In a recent letter titled, "Agenda of intolerance persists in society," the writer once again cannot seem to understand what the world intolerance means. According to Funk and Wagnalle College Dictionary, "Not tolerant; not disposed to tolerate belief, practices, racial or social types." Now that we understand, let's see who's really intolerant. I'm not going to quote a bunch of Bible verses against homosexuals although there are many. I will, though, quote only on which will include others as well.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10: "Don't you know that those who do wrong will have no share in the Kingdom of God? Don't fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, who are idol worshipers, adulterers, male prostitutes, homosexuals, thieves, greedy people, drunkards, abusers and swindlers - none of these will have a share in the Kingdom of God."
I don't see why this is so hard to understand. I know your first words will be we are judging you. No we are not but God will. And we are not using old tactics, we are quoting the word of God. if anyone is being intolerant it is you. Your argument is not with us, it is with God. If you would want to read other Bible Scriptures about this read, 1 Timothy 1:10 and Romans 1:24-27. Like it or not it's God's word and that's the final word.
Also, the Bible dies not condone slavery. God would never and has never said it was right. What he did say is if many had you under slavery this is how you should act as a follower or child of God.
The denominations who teach these things are right in God's sight and claim they are in Christ is a liar. You are the ones who are intolerant to God's Holy Scriptures. We are trying to get you to see the truth. You can not in any case tell God He was wrong in what is in the Holy Bible. It is my calling as a minister of the true word of God to warn you. It is your choice to believe or not. I have done my part and now I leave you to argue with God. It is my prayer you will change before it's too late.
