    The First Commandment prohibits the worship of other Gods.

    If God doesn't exhibit religious tolerance, why should man?

    because god has a higher intelligence than we do and he knows the other gods are not him.

    Why would God give man a commandment which man does not have the epistemic capacity to fulfill?

    Because they're not so much rules, as guidelines.

    Tolerance is not the same as worship.

    You can (and should, although not many do) respect other religions without practicing them and worshipping their god(s).

    But God is a jealous god.

    But by doing so, you tolerate other people breaking the First Commandment. That is, you are saying that it is acceptable for some people to break the First Commandment. This is what I am enquiring about.

    You don't think it's a virtue to tolerate somebody breaking the Sixth Commandment, do you? And isn't the First Commandment the greater of the two? Why would you tolerate people breaking any of God's Commandments?

    So tell us, who does God require to worship him? Who does he force to worship him?

    It's not a question of tolerating their behaviour or 'saying that it is acceptable', it's about respecting their right to exercise their free will and not judging them for it.

    It is always considered virtuous to refrain from passing judgement.

    Would you say the same regarding violations of God's Sixth Commandment?

    Yes, I would.

    Eg - my soon to be brother in law (I'm engaged to his sister) is 19 yo and got his girlfriend (who is 18) pregnant. Now, they are both from Christian families and regularly attend church (although the guy doesn't go anymore). Whilst I think what they did was stupid and avoidable, I cannot and should not judge them for their actions or tell them how to live their lives.

    I respect their right to 'get their freak on' if they want to (even though I wouldn't do it myself).

    P.S> I know it's not technically adultery, but same idea and I've have the same response to it.
