“Then you will understand what is right and just and fair–every good path.”
Compromise is the greatest reason for today’s weak, ineffective, and Biblically illiterate church. Compromise is now part of the landscape of the church and the world we live in today. Because of compromise we now have churches embracing gross sins like homosexuality and abortion. Because of compromise, we have people sitting in pews who actually think that members of a cult like Scientology, false religions like Islam, and people of no faith at all will somehow get into heaven. The vast majority of pastors today compromise the Truth of the Bible so they don’t offend anyone. They compromise the Truth of the Bible so people like them. They compromise the Truth of the Bible to be liked by those who lead the cults and false religions. They compromise the Truth of the Bible to raise money. This is not only true in the church, but it is true in your life as well. There is no such thing as a little sin. Sin, by its very definition, is rebellion against God. You either obey God or you don’t. There is no middle ground. You are either living in accordance with His Word, or you are living in rebellion to His Word. There is no room for compromise. Many of you are facing the problems you have in your life today, because you chose to compromise God’s Word. The fact is, our way doesn’t work and God’s way does. My word for you today is to hold firm to the truth of God’s Word. It will guide you and sustain you through the good times and bad. Don’t ever let the enemy deceive you into believing that you have a better plan than God does. When you compromise what God has said, you are telling your Creator that you know more than He does. Never forget that compromise is a trap from Satan himself that will only bring heartache and pain. Follow God’s way and don’t compromise, that is where you will find the blessings that come from God..
