This Intolerant God

This impatience of the Bible that refuses to accept anything less than total fidelity is only a reflection of the intolerant God of the Bible who insists on having all your affections.

Hmm. I'd never call God `intolerant' myself, since there is a sense in which he is very tolerant:
Romans 9:22 `What if God, choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath—prepared for destruction?'.
