I believe with all my heart that civilization has produced nothing finer
than a man or woman who thinks and practices true tolerance.
- Frank Knox

WRONG!!!!!!!!! I will not tolerate ill-manners, disrespect, drugs, immorality, lying, cheating, stealing, hatred, and such in my home. Even God does not tolerate some things.

Proverbs 6:16-19 (King James Version)
16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Proverbs 6:16-19 (The Message)
16-19 Here are six things God hates, and one more that he loathes with a passion: eyes that are arrogant, a tongue that lies, hands that murder the innocent, a heart that hatches evil plots, feet that race down a wicked track, a mouth that lies under oath, a troublemaker in the family.


  1. Totally agree. There are times we must not tolerate the actions and words of others when contrary to the Word.

  2. Amen!!!! Sobering passage their in Proverbs; and so true!

  3. Good blog!!
    I have found myself more than once in a situation where I was asked or told to be TOLERANT only for the same person to REFUSE or show any TOLERANCE for or to me.


  4. Sis. Hopper - I agree wholeheartedly.

    Janell - agreed.

    Mervi - having been in university, I'm sure the gay agenda was pushed on you often and, if you disagreed, they were never tolerant of your opinion. It really is frustrating at times.

  5. I think you have to be careful that you mean the same thing as Frank Knox does concerning the term "true tolerance." If you have different definitions of what that means, you are disagreeing about words not ideas. Unless I knew the man and the context in which this was spoken or written, which I don't, I wouldn't be so sure I disagree.
