Compromise is not of God, when we are dealing with evil. “Follow the instructions of the Lord…do not compromise with evil. “Psalm 119:1-3 Much of the following here is from a man I deeply admire, the Reverend Franklin Graham, May’s Decision Magazine.
When Noah, the movie was released, it was described as a “biblically inspired fantasy film”, loaded with compromises that cannot drown the truth. Some say the world is not held responsible for misinterpreting God’s Word, but the Bible does not agree. “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually…and He was grieved in His heart. And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.” Genesis 6:5-6,13 God not only holds His followers to account, but all of mankind. The human race continues gulping the bitter water in the sea of immorality, rejecting truth and trying to silence God’s people. Immorality still reigns alongside of evil around the world. Much of what has been argued between God’s people and the left wing liberals, many of those who call themselves Christians have departed from the clarity of God’s Word, as the leadership of World Vision US did in March when they announced heir employment of “gay Christians in legal same sex marriages.”
Graham goes on to say, “The very day World Vision announced its great compromise on a basic truth of Scripture, that the homosexual lifestyle is sin and that marriage is between a man and a woman, the Supreme Court began hearings to determine if the owners of Hobby Lobby, should be required to provide life terminating drugs etc. to their employees, in spite of their spiritual convictions.” “The contrast was stunning”, he went on to say. “While the Christian owned business stood up against a federal government bent on forcing them to compromise the right to life, (murder in God’s eyes) a Christian charity compromised the sacredness of marriage, stating that “it’s the right thing to do for the unity within the church.” Forty eight hours after World Vision’s announcement, they were forced to reverse their epic decision after a flooding backlash from offended donors. (Now too, this week, the monumental decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, allowing prayer in public and government, town hall meetings, which is an epic decision. Thank you ACLJ and Counsel Jay Sekulov for all you do.)
The Bible gives strong warning to those who tamper with God’s truth. “From among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away [followers] after themselves.” (Acts 20:30) Graham went on to say how especially grievous it was to him since World Vision and Samaritan’s Purse, were founded by the same man, his mentor and friend, the late Dr. Bob Pierce. Pierce often said, “I want my heart to be broken by the things that break the heart of God.” For the whole episode was a disregard for Biblical truth. True followers of Jesus Christ cannot endorse same sex marriage, abortion, and/or anything that offends the word of God. These moral issues have been settled by God Himself. And I agree with Rev. Graham that I too, would rather be on the wrong side of public opinion, that on the wrong side of Almighty God, whose word established the standard of living for the world He created. It is a moral issue not a political one. It is now in this pop culture about the great compromise, calling into question the authority of the Holy Scripture! And I add also to this, the move several years ago that was in a Christian magazine, called “Chrislam”, trying to meld Christianity and Islam together to be “politically and culturally correct”. It was also called out on one nationwide tv station, when then, Rev. Jack Van Impe, canceled his contract and left the tv station. He stood for the Word of God and what was correct. For Islam is not a religion such as Christianity, and has hate and killings while Jesus and the gospel tells us to lay that down. You cannot side with evil. The Bible says, “Now the Spirit [of God] expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy”. (I Timothy 4:1-2)
The late Adrian Rogers said, “It is better to be divided by truth than to be united in error. It is better to stand with the truth, than to be wrong with a multitude.” Graham said, ” It is time for the discussion of unity within the church to come into alignment with God’s Word on the issue of marriage. When there is division within the church, it is because individuals are against Christ Himself, for He is the head of His church, made up of the redeemed who are called to be one with Christ. The church, therefore, is on dangerous ground when it departs from the teaching of Christ and attempts to redefine His commands and compromise His truth. There are many things in Scripture that Christians disagree on, but the Bible is crystal clear about the sanctity of life and marriage. ” Compromise is dangerous territory for the Christian; mixing a little truth with a lot of error, wavering between right and wrong. Jesus said, “I know your works, that you are neither hot nor cold. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot I will spew (vomit) you out of My mouth. ” Revelation 3:15,19. That means anyone who does compromise and thinks he is saved, will “compromise” himself out of heaven losing his salvation. Spurgeon said, “Discernment is not knowing the difference between right or wrong. It is knowing the difference between right and almost right!”
Franklin Graham said, “from compromise to deceit is a small step.” The Bible says, “I, even I am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins – state your case that you may be acquitted”. Isaiah 43:25-26 We are all great sinners who have received forgiveness by a great Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, from the lineage of David, Isaac, Jacob, Abraham. Who went on that Cross and shed His life and his blood for the sins of all mankind. If He could do all that for us, can we not be of one accord, as Christians, and not divert from the true Word of God? From Biblical times to now, has been fraught with the peril that comes when believers fall out of allegiance to their first love, thereby inviting grave consequences.
Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas Governor, said, “I’m stunned by the preponderance of white surrender flags flying from churches, pulpits and once decidedly biblically based organizations and businesses. We want to be ‘accepted’ and ‘included’ by the cultural elites. The result is a collapse of conviction. Even worse is the rationale and justification. The consequences are fairly straightforward and simple –‘if the salt has lost its savor, its useless.” Ephesians 6:11-17 “Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to STAND against the wiles of the Devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of the world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore, take unto you the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day (now?) , and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with Truth (the truth of the CROSS), and having on the breastplate of Righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of Peace; Above all, taking the shield of Faith, wherewith you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”
Wherefore, Christ makes it clear, we are not to just go with the flo of compromise, or evil, but put on His armour and STAND…Let your voices be heard…be not a milk toast, cowering, and /or remain apathetic! Embracing sin, divides us. Words like “unity, love, acceptance and forgiveness” are being widely used, these days OUT OF BIBLICAL context in an attempt to rationalize positions that DEFY scripture! Some say we should simply stop rendering moral judgments about others, but thats NOT the answer Jesus offered.” Evangelicals who don’t compromise scriptural principles on morality are accused, both in secular and religious circles, of over-emphasizing the topic and being hateful. Which is hogwash! Relenting is not an option! Those who keep silent on key issues, don’t think of consequence, then you bend and ok issues that defile God. Over the years, segments of the church have been either lax or anti-biblical on issues like slavery, racial segregation, abortion, and essential doctrines of the Gospel.
In the 1940’s the German church, collapsed under the influence of Hitler’s Nazi regime. “The consequences are DEADLY! We have become a stumbling block to the Gospel. There is no more severe indictment of any church or any Christian than that! Huckabee said, “I’m on earth temporarily, so the worst the world can do is shun me, punish me, or kill me.”” In 100 years years, it won’t matter. What WILL matter is if I was faithful to God’s word.” Wherefore I agree with the Governor, 100%. This woman, will STAND for the gospel, for Jesus, and for the CROSS, in spite of threats, in spite of the turmoil of the world, in spite of pressure even from other Christians. For my goal is towards eternity with my Lord, and no one else here on earth, has any dominion over me, only the one who died for my sins at the CROSS. Egypt knew truths, when Coptic Christian churches that stood for centuries, where destroyed and young Christian women killed. The Muslim Brotherhood is now deemed evil in Egypt and CRIMINAL, but Cair and the Muslim Brotherhood in America has direct access to the White House, pulling the strings! Shame on American Black pastors that voted for Obama and color, instead of voting for the CROSS!
If you think this is wrong? Play this tape..for this is coming or is already here now in America too. Man got arrested for quoting Winston Churchill in UK. Sharia law now being enforced in the UK..Also Brussels, Belgium. Watch whole tape, please.
HOPE!! That is what my blog is all about…from CBN news:
I can only pray for the Brits. This is what happens when they leave Jesus Christ for secular. The enemy has invaded and taken over. I know that Trinity Broadcasting has opened up a Christian Studio in London, right down the street from Buckingham Palace. I pray for TBN’s safety, and for British laws cover them. Think…and remember all this on our American elections, as we cannot let this happen here in America! Both books below are on Amazon, as well as Wallid Shoebat and Brigett Gabrielle’s books.
