COMPROMISE

This is exactly what most professing Christian people are doing- compromising, trying to live enough like the world so they won’t be alienated or lose friends, feeding their flesh with the world, and throwing just enough Jesus around to look like they have faith but only when it is convenient. Most people are false Christians. The Bible says so. Warning after warning and these people close their ears and minds to the Word of God because they only want to hear what ‘feels good’ and what will bring them pleasure. The Bible says that most people are going to Hell. Does that make you angry? It should. Jesus spoke more about Hell than anything else for a reason and that is because He knew this day would come to pass when people would become compromisers and turn away from the faith.

The Bible tells us to not even eat with these people who claim to be Christian but they are pretenders because they will corrupt you. I know this even from personal experience. It is better to sit with an outright sinner and unbeliever than to be anywhere near someone who proclaims to be a believer but they are not!

When we face judgment we will stand ALONE in the face of God. Do not be like the foolish virgins who never put oil in their lamps. MAKE READY NOW for the coming of the Lord! -Admin-

No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24 (NKJV)

A veteran U.S. senator humorously tells how his late father used to describe fence-sitters: “My daddy told me there isn’t anything in the middle of the road except dead skunks and a yellow line.”

His reference was obviously political, but the same principle applies in the spiritual dimension: compromise with worldly, fleshly standards does not please us or God.

And that is exactly where the carnal Christians finds himself: trying as best he can to walk a spiritual middle of the road where he can blend his bent toward self with faith toward God. God described such a state in more graphic terms: “I know your deeds, that you are neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth” (Revelation 3:15-16 NASB).

Why such disgust? Because Jesus must be acknowledged as Lord of all. Receiving Christ is the step on a brand-new course of life, where we allow Christ to express His life through us.

If you are attempting to hold on to a lifestyle that denies the absolute lordship of Christ, realize the danger and ask Him to take total possession and control of your life.
