Jeremiah 15: 19-20 says, “19 …Before Me you will stand; and if you extract the precious from the worthless, you will become My spokesman. …you must not turn to them. 20 “Then I will make you to this people A fortified wall of bronze; and though they fight against you, They will not prevail over you; For I am with you to save you And deliver you,” declares the LORD.
Tolerance prevents us from “being God’s spokespersons who have a clarity of understanding of His word that provides discernment to extract the precious from the worthless.”
In Mark 8, Matt. 16 and Luke 12, Christ “cautioned them, saying, “Watch out; beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.” Leaven in this sense is an agent that infiltrates God’s standard with what today we call “political correctness,” which communicates the policies the government promotes supersede the commands of God.
Government forced “political correctness,” tries to intimidate and threaten us if we stand on God’s Word and adhere to God’s standard.
1 Corinthians 10: 3-5 says, “3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, 4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. 5 We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.”
Taking each thought captive in Christ helps us see God’s standard of truth to withstand falsely validating shoddy science that is nothing but sin-driven human opinions that oppose what the Bible teaches.
As walls of Christ-like thinking we can stand against government looming over us to tolerate its version of sexuality, which denies how Gen 1:27 says that “in the image of God He created him; male and female…” In Christ we also can resist government misrepresenting how God has created a renewable, self-sustaining environment, which has perpetuated itself from the beginning of time. Through Gen 1:27 – 31 where God says, he has given every plant and tree and animal as food because they bear seed and multiply endlessly. And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.” We need to communicate that the preservation of the world does not rely upon the government telling us that when we exhale C02, or when cows expel it, we are harming the perpetual cycle of life God Created. In fact, the C02 we and the cows expel actually provides the atmospheric chemical mixture for photosynthesis to occur, so plants and trees do turn green. We need to be walls that do not tolerate the lie of Man-made global warming – as if us puny humans can change the weather which the Bible and common sense tells us only God controls.
Tolerance which disregards God’s standard for truth is the leaven that is leavening our society. Standing objectively on God’s truth by taking His word literally is how we help others see how we get lifted up in Liberty.
