    Tolerance = indifference? Example? The 1.5% are quite passionate about their cause to be tolerated. They are the opposite of indifferent.

      ? What you just asked me doesn't apply to what i addressed in any way.

      I didn't say anything about tolerance or indifference.

      Go back, read the quote i responded to.

            indifference as a synonym.

            tolerate
            verb
            Synonyms and Antonyms of TOLERATE
            1
            to fail to prevent (some behavior on someone's part) especially from neglect or indifference

            I am using real word definitions, not liberal redefinitions of words for pop culture. The first and primary meaning of the word tolerate is indifference.

              exactly, righteous does not mean sinless. Paul said there is none righteous. Romans 3:10 KJV -

              The Lord God counts and imputes faith, works, deeds and acts AS righteousness.

              • Job asks God why is there suffering and why are the good punished.

                God responds out of the whirlwind with some natural history.

                  Why wouldn't he count his own work righteous?



                  Romans 12:3 KJVA


                  3 For I say , through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think ; but to think soberly , according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.


                  Philippians 2:13 KJV


                  13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

                    And there is much to speculate on.

                    My own personal preference is that Job lived sometime just prior to, or during, the time of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
                    Well considering one of Job's 'friends' is Eliphaz the 1st born son of Esau and we know Eliphaz is an old man at the time it is pretty conclusive when the time period is. It specifically calls Eliphaz the Temenite. Temen was the eldest son of Esau and the father lived with his eldest son in old age. That is why the eldest was given the double portion of inheritance. They often named the cities after that eldest son. So Eliphaz from the city of Temen is the son of Esau.

                    Btw, all 3 of Job's friends are pagans that followed different gods. Eliphaz was a sun god worshiper.
