Tolerance - In the Name of Love

Equality for all in the name of love, because God loves everyone the same.
Compassion for the sinner in the name of love, because none of us is without sin.
Forgiveness offered freely in the name of love, without a cost.
Embracing anything and everything in the name of love, a distortion of truth.
Kindness to others in the name of love is obedience, but without the truth it falls short.

The truth of God’s Word has been overshadowed in the name of love.
The truth of a God who loves us all the same, and who is Love.
The truth of a God who sent His Son to die for us in the name of love.
The truth of His Son who paid the price for all sin willingly in the name of love.
The truth of His Son who rose again so we could live in the name of love.

Equality for all in the name of love? God’s plan of redemption.
Compassion for the sinner in the name of love? God’s mercy and grace.
Forgiveness offered freely in the name of love? It cost Jesus His life.
Embracing anything else, even in the name of love, is deception.
Kindness to others is sharing the truth in the name of love and is our responsibility.

In the name of love, our country has slowly been blinded to the truth.
In the name of love, God’s love, we need to open our eyes.
In the name of love, we need to call a sin a sin while sharing God’s love for the sinner.
In the name of love, we need to open the Bible and place God first again. 
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord . . . in the name of love.
