Tolerance and “Seeing no evil.”

2012 ·

The Urantia Book teaches us that tolerance is a virtue and necessary for spiritual growth. But should we be tolerant of everything ? Is the referred link a consequence of tolerating evil behavior. Are we personally and as a society tolerating evil behavior ? How would tolerating evil behavior affect our spiritual status ? What retribution, if any, would we suffer physically, mentally or within our families. ? Is homosexual behavior evil ? An “error” in our thinking ?

P1446:5, 131:3.3 “Unrighteousness is contemptible; sin is despicable. Evil is degrading, whether held in thought or wrought out in deeds. Pain and sorrow follow in the path of evil as the dust follows the wind. Happiness and peace of mind follow pure thinking and virtuous living as the shadow follows the substance of material things. Evil is the fruit of wrongly directed thinking. It is evil to see sin where there is no sin; to see no sin where there is sin. Evil is the path of FALSE DOCTRINES. Those who avoid evil BY SEEING THINGS AS THEY ARE gain joy by thus embracing the truth. Make an end of your MISERY BY LOATHING SIN. When you look up to the Noble One, turn away from sin with a whole heart. Make no apology for evil; MAKE NO EXCUSE FOR SIN. By your efforts to make amends for past sins you acquire strength to resist future tendencies thereto. Restraint is born of repentance. Leave no fault unconfessed to the Noble One.
