Now it’s your turn

  

Do you engage in Bad Compromises?

   

Compromise
weaken (a reputation or principle) by accepting standards that are lower than is desirable

~ bring into disrepute or danger by indiscreet, foolish, or reckless behavior

Here’s what the Bible says about compromises

32 Stand up for me against world opinion 
and I’ll stand up for you before my Father in heaven. 
33 If you turn tail and run, 
do you think I’ll cover for you?
Matthew 10:32-33

Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture
that you fit into it without even thinking.
Instead, fix your attention on God.
You’ll be changed from the inside out.
Readily recognize what he wants from you,
 and quickly respond to it.
Unlike the culture around you,
always dragging you down to its level of immaturity,
God brings the best out of you,
develops well-formed maturity in you.
Romans 12:2

Don’t become partners with those who reject God.
How can you make a partnership out of right and wrong?
That’s not partnership;
that’s war.
Is light best friends with dark?
2 Corinthians 6:14

“So leave the corruption and compromise;
leave it for good,” says God.
“Don’t link up with those who will pollute you.
I want you all for myself.”
2 Corinthians 6:17

Don’t let yourselves get taken in by religious smooth talk.
God gets furious with people who are
full of religious sales talk
but want nothing to do with him.
Ephesians 5:6

3 God tested us thoroughly to make sure we were
qualified to be trusted with this Message.
4 Be assured that when we speak to you we’re not after crowd approval—
only God approval.
Since we’ve been put through that battery of tests,
you’re guaranteed that both we
and the Message are free of error,
mixed motives,
or hidden agendas.
1 Thessalonians 2:3-4

Anyone who gets so progressive in his thinking
that he walks out on the teaching of Christ,
walks out on God.
But whoever stays with the teaching,
stays faithful to both the Father and the Son.
2 John 9

15 I know you inside and out, 
and find little to my liking.
You’re not cold, 
you’re not hot— 
far better to be either cold or hot! 
16 You’re stale. 
You’re stagnant. 
You make me want to vomit. 
Revelation 3:15-16
