Abstract: Tolerant conversation prevents the individual from identifying with his idea or dogma. If Christianity and Islam teach that love is a commandment, which later includes love of the impatient, then honest. conversation can be considered a good way to reach the religious other. To be patient and tolerant of the impatient is generosity. It is certainly better to be overly patient than overly impatient. The question is often asked whether patience has a limit? If the view is accepted that one should be patient with everyone, then it goes without saying that one should be patient with those who are not patient. Different and opposing views can be reconciled in some way, but exceptional views can never be tolerated. If members of two or more religions are in a dispute or conflict, then the dispute cannot be resolved rationally. The only solution is for the two sides to reconcile and live side by side. If individuals in society do not love each other, it is enough to respect them. If they cannot live together in a brotherhood, they can be acquaintances or neighbors. I believe that those who have opposites can make peace and live side by side. We cannot always expect believers to love members of other faiths, but we can ask them to be patient. Religious tolerance is manifested in the everyday relations between people, but also in the attitude towards different ideas, and customs, as well as towards the different physical and mental characteristics of the believers. Intolerance of the difference is one of the permanent characteristics of an authoritative person, but intolerance can also be a consequence of certain social circumstances. Religion and tolerance are linked, as evidenced by numerous examples from history and the present. Although religious exclusivity, extremism, and terrorism do not belong to the ethical teachings of the world's religions, we are still witnessing that they are one of the greatest challenges facing the global world.
