Bible Verses About Tolerance

God - Gods

Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation. Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations. For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens. Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.

1 Chronicles 16: 23-27

The Way to God

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 14, 6

God - Gods - Idols

As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

1 Corinthians 8: 4-6

Tolerance in the Right Situation

If it relates to matters of taste, likes and dislikes, tolerance is of "priceless" value to enable us to live in peace and a manner that is enjoyable for all.

If it relates to God, it is also wrong to force ones own convictions on others, however it is equally wrong to look at two each other contradicting statements about God and declare them to be both right.  God is real and about something real there are two kinds of statements: right ones and wrong / misleading ones.  To ask for tolerance in this regard is just inapproriate.
