Psychology: Tolerate all Beliefs (except for Christianity) (6)

Modern society places an emphasis on tolerance, in particular, religious tolerance. Tolerance in modern society means to accept the beliefs of others to be legitimate in itself on the grounds that people have "right" to choose what they want to believe in. This is completely contrary to the words of Jesus (John 14:6): "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

People are indeed given by God, the choice to believe in what they want, that is to break the 1st and 2nd Commandments, or the repent and trust in Jesus. God did not make us robots, but people with a free will.

Many unbelievers are quick to say, "judge not lest you be judged" when confronted with the Law of God. Yes, Jesus did say that, and He did indeed tell the people who were about the stone the woman caught in the act of adultery, "let he who has never sinned throw the first stones". (John 8:7) However, He did not say to the adulteress, "keep sinning". No, He said, "Woman, I do not condemn you. Go sin no more." (John 8:11)

Religious tolerance is a false doctrine that justifies idolatry and is the lie that there is more than one way to be right with God

13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. (Matthew 7:13-14)
