    if God does not tolerate sin why did he invent it.

    Excellent question. Yes, why?

    Actually the Presbyterians have openly gay and lesbian ministers in their ranks. They passed that historic measure to allow gay clergy on May 10th, 2011!

    @Orthodox Catholic
    God apparently does tolerate misspelling.

    Despite California’s proposition 8, the LDS church has had some calls among members to soften their aggressive anti- gay agenda. Utah has a higher than national suicide average…lots of available guns, and a general intolerance of gays by a majority Mormons, which leaves some gay teenagers

    As I recall, Jesus of Nazareth, who was later attributed to be the son of God, not only tolerated sinners, but ate, conversed, and hung out with them. If God exists, he can take care of who he accepts and who he doesn’t. Let him do it.

    “Let him do it.” Fine, mean while, some who claim to be Christians, go far out of their way to make life hell on earth for non-conformists.

    One has free will to sin or not, to love, like Jesus said, or not.

    Accusing others of intolerance is, well, getting to be a real pain in the neck.

    Of course God tolerates sin. If not, there would be no hope. Furthermore, for centuries, people have acted in good conscience in ways we would now consider sinful. Repentance is for restoring the relationship with a God who is always looking not at the sin but the child He loves. It’s sinful for us to focus on others when it is to the health of our own relationship with God that we should be looking.

    I might posit that it is not so much a question of inventing sin. Since I believe the process of creation is achieved through evolution, this is simply the best God’s been able to make the world (and us) so far. We’re the beta test, as it were. The question is, would we rather have the world the way it is, with all it’s confusion and pain, or would we rather have it, and us, not exist?

    @ahab

    Some who claim to be just about anything (Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, agnostic, atheist and so on) go well out of their way to make life he’ll for non-conformists. I believe it is less a religious condition than a human condition. I admit, however, that religion is often the excuse given to abuse others. I’m just convinced that even if there were no religion, you’d still have the same abuses with different excuses.

    Does your God tolerate humans passing judgement on others as though they are God?
