Church of the Brethren
*Forbearance:
Forbearance is a biblical concept.
The Greek words in the New Testament translated as carry meanings of patience self-control, restraint,
mercy, long-suffering and the refusal to threaten (EPH. 4:2; COL 3:13, EPH 6:9, 11COR 12:6)
Forbearance does not jeopardize or denigrate individual conviction, but it does place boundaries on the
quality and character of individual responses.
Forbearance does not require one to accept what another believes, but it does require one to listen and try
to understand what another believes without demeaning, personal attacks, or acting to disenfranchise the
other person.
