Intolerance - the quality or state of being unable or unwilling to put up with
a reluctance to grant rights to other people
We have blurred the lines between “opinions” and “God’s Word!”
We CAN be tolerant of “opinions.” We MUST be intolerant of attacks against “sin/doctrine/the Bible!”

,-Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

Thyatira
- Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
Belief Only?
- Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
- And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:
Jms. 2:19- Devils believe?
Jms. 2:14- Can faith save?
Jms. 2:17,26

Grace?
7 Churches: Repent or be Removed!
!
Not Saved by “ONLY”- Faith or Works
- For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Jms. 2- Faith is shown by “Obeying-Works” of God!
Every Denominational Church has influence from the Catholic Church!
Founded:
- And he is the head of the body, the church:
- and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
Not the Pope!
Forgiveness?
Not the Pope or Priest!
- Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints
