Tolerance and the Christian
Tolerance, for the Christian, is indeed recognizing that all lifestyles apart from Christ are condemned. It is the opposite of acceptance, for every lifestyle cries out for the redemptive model. Apart from Christ there is no good thing. Jude reminds us to love others, even while hating the very clothing stained by their corruption. Tolerance for all others, but condemnation of lifestyle choices. Quite a contrast to today’s definition of tolerance!
