To try and "understand" GOD's Mercy by associating it too the "best" we can imagine; Is limiting WHO GOD can be in our lives. We are Loved, Forgiven, Favored and given Mercy, "INSPITE" of ourselves. We have a mindset that reveals GOD as Forgiving and therefore, tolerant. Everything can be Forgiven; but not Everything is to be Tolerated. Romans 6:1, "...Shall we continue in sin...?" Why should we Forgive (or be Forgiven) sin but not Tolerate (or be Tolerated) sin? Toleration affects our discernment, right and wrong becomes cloudy. Toleration begins to justify our lusts for sin, even where we try to find Scriptural justification for our thoughts and actions. Toleration of sin can make us "SERMON PROOF" where we no longer respond to the HOLY SPIRIT'S CONVICTION. FORGIVENESS DOES NOT MEAN TOLERATION.
