2 Timothy 3:5

"...having a form of godliness, but denying it's power."

1 Corinthians 13 (Today's version)

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not tolerance, I have become a sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not tolerance, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not tolerance, it profits me nothing.

Tolerance suffers long and is kind; tolerance does not envy; tolerance does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Tolerance never fails.

But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide diversity, sensitivity, tolerance, these three; but the greatest of these is tolerance.

A new idea, Allen, but I prefer Paul's version in the Bible. As for "tolerance" there are times when we have to be intolerant. Eg when something is proposed for acceptance within the church which is contrary to God's Word.
