Compromise is the Betrayal of Life

Compromise is the Betrayal of Life

Compromise is a transaction involving a concession to yield to something less than that with which you were initially in agreement.      It will contaminate, corrupt, and defile your belief system if it involves your consecration to Christian values.  Compromise will lead you into deception and betrayal.  Everything you compromise to gain, you will eventually lose.

Compromise is a dangerous position.  It is a dead-end street.  To go forward is like jumping over a cliff with no parachute.  Life is a journey.  Is the direction you have chosen to follow leading you toward life or death, success or failure…?  Where are you headed?

II Corinthians 6:17 (MSG)

“So leave corruption and compromise: leave it for good, says God. Don’t link up with those who will pollute you and I will receive you.”

Practical Application and Assignments:

Compromise leaves you in a miserable state if it requires a decision to betray your true values.

  • Think about the following questions: “How can you make a partnership out of right and wrong? Is light best friends with darkness? Does Christ go strolling with the devil? Do trust and mistrust hold hands? Who would think of setting up pagan idols in God’s holy temple?” II Corinthians 6:14-16 (MSG)
  • Do not be deceived. One step of compromise will always lead to another. Immoral compromise is never satisfied. It will always demand more and takes you to a place that is contaminated with      unrighteousness.
  • Don’t compromise your convictions. Don’t move. If you give an inch to compromise it will take a mile. “For justice will return to the (uncompromisingly) righteous, and all the upright in heart will follow it.” Psalm 94:15 (AMP)

“…Let us cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates and defiles body and spirit, and bring our consecration to completeness in the (reverential) fear of God.” II Corinthians 7:1 (AMP)
