Are Christians commanded to be tolerant in the Bible?

Yes

I guess the message ''turn The other cheek'' and the acceptance Jesus showed towards Judas even though he knew he was a thief and would eventually betray him would indicate that tolerance is the dominant message depicted in the Bible.

On the other side of the coin Jesus made a whip from cord and lashed out at the merchants and money lenders trading outside a Temple.

No, that's just the New Testament. In the Old Testament it says that when you find someone who worships another God you have to burn his city to the ground and kill all his livestock.

The word 'Tolerant' is not in Scripture. KJV

That's my best answer really.

Side: No

That's because God does not "tolerate" sin. Therefore the word "tolerance", as the left uses it is of Satan, and not God. It is clearly evil to tolerate everything. It would mean you'd have to tolerate pedophilia, rape, murder, theft, immorality, child abuse, slander, libel, greed, oppression, etc.

Side: Yes
