- The ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with
Let’s be real….the definition of tolerance today is incredibly skewed! It’s more like having to agree with or accepted everyone’s opinions or behaviors as equal to ours……even tho they are different.
Let me preface this by saying I am a Christian, Jesus Christ is my Savior and I believe that the Bible is the truth in written word!
It’s funny to me how everyone want to claim injustice or being offended because people are NOT tolerant to their beliefs. Do they listen and not tell you that you are wrong or put you down? Guess what then they are being tolerant!!! They don’t have to agree with you to be tolerant! Infact tolerance by definition it politely accepting your beliefs, behaviors and opinions….but not agreeing!
I also find it frustrating as a Christian, who being taught to love everyone, even my enemies….That because I love Jesus I am not given the same courtesy.
Why?! Because I am taught to love you even tho you have in a sense disrespected me and my beliefs?! Tolerance has to be the same across the board! We have to be willing to accept people and their different opinions and beliefs. Let’s be more be more tolerant and have less pacification!
