It’s a backwards philosophy to think tolerating sin somehow makes it right and will bring you or somebody else closer to God. For some reason people think this way, thinking we have to tolerate sin and except the sin so those practicing the sin will see Gods love.
It’s really does not work that way, the opposite of sin is righteous so how does tolerating and embracing something that is not righteous move us closer to God. Righteousness is hard to perfect and probably impossible to achieve since our natural desires tend to be sin but this does not mean we tolerate, embrace and practice sin.
We fight a daily battle with involving ourselves or participating with sin but it’s our own battle one we have to fight and only allow God to help fight it for us. We can ask our neighbor to intercede with pray’re but we really cannot ask them to be apart or condone the sin if we do so we now have caused our neighbor to stumble.
It is so important we continually do our best to study Gods word to help us know and understand our place with him and him with us. Studying his word and his creed is essential to keeping our minds and hearts clean of this worlds sin. God will always forgive us for our sins if we just ask 1 John 1:9but we have to try and to run from and not embrace or tolerate the sin.
Sin only distracts us from his truth, it turns lies into unreality and suppresses our knowledge and will lead us to more sin and finally we loose the ability to know right from wrong, good from bad. Roman 1:18 . I beg people to not promote or embrace sin just because it’s seems like it’s the relevant thing in the here and now. We can counsel with people that are stricken, we can be by their side, pray and hold them up to God for healing but do not tolerate or try and make sin seem like a normal thing because that is exactly what the world wants you to do.
