Harlot in our midst
The Great Harlot Called Tolerance
Written by Guest Author: Danielle Kohen
Do not be misled. Grace is not the same as tolerance. In no way does God have the ability to tolerate sin. By his great mercy and grace, he has made a way for us to be reconciled to him through his son, Jesus. There is no other way.
Yes, the Harlot of Revelation has a name, and her name is Tolerance. She has already begun to charm and seduce the masses. So many adoring fans watch on the sidelines and cheer, the media splashes headlines around world news, and the world leaders are both intrigued and fantasising about what they can do with her. Regaled in splendour and false beauty, all marvel at her.
She is here now, on the world stage for all to see. She is a one-world religion of “tolerance”. She speaks grand words and claims to know how to unite the world through shared love and tolerance of religion.
Yet she is guilty of more crimes against humanity in history than anyone. How many martyrs murdered? How many children robbed of their innocence? How many poor have been robbed by her? She is indeed drunk on the blood of the saints and will continue to persecute those loyal to the one true God. The saints serve only God. They do not serve her so she hates them.
She is wicked and guilty of so many terrible things.
Tolerance whispers to the weak and she says:
“You don’t need a saviour,
Everyone goes to heaven,
You don’t need to repent,
You don’t need to change,
Sin is ok,
There are no rules,
Everything is grey,
Everyone is welcome,
Homosexuality is a celebration; not an abomination,
God’s design is not perfect; swap your gender and chase after beauty,
You can do what you want,
You can pray to whoever you call God,
You can idolise yourself,
I can give you everything you want,
I am your Queen,
Bow down to me now,
Because I will tolerate everything you do.”
Her words are sweet like honey, but she will take you down to the abyss. Be wise and do not let her tempt you. Do not listen to her. Drink only the water from your own cistern and listen only to the one true God and read his Word. Just as the adulterous woman of Proverbs 5, the Great Harlot, Tolerance displays the exact the same characteristics and will leave you with exactly the same fate.
“For the lips of the adulterous woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil; but in the end she is bitter as gall, sharp as a double-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave. She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths wander aimlessly, but she does not know it.” Proverbs 5:3-6
Tolerance will make you bear her burdens and suffer. She persecutes those that stand up and speak against her. When you do not bow to her demands or conform to her ideology, she screams at you and calls you “bigot”, “intolerant”, “discriminatory” or “prejudiced”. She sentences you with hate crimes just for standing in agreement with the Word of God. And just like Jezebel, Tolerance is a power hungry murderess who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.
She masquerades under the banners of “human fraternity” and “world peace”. But she will turn on the faithful remnant in an instant, like a viper. There is no peace found in her, only strife and death. She will prostitute herself to all the false gods and all the world leaders.
Above all, remember that as God’s faithful, we are called to love each other and to love our enemies. This is a far higher calling than what Tolerance is calling you to.
“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:27-31
As the faithful remnant of the Most High God, let us keep the faith, fight the good fight, run the race with perseverance, and keep our eyes on the prize. Let us finish the race and not be turned to the right or to the left by the Harlot, Tolerance.
