Psalm 119:126 It is time for thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void thy law. 127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold. 128 THEREFORE I ESTEEM ALL THY PRECEPTS CONCERNING ALL THINGS TO BE RIGHT; and I hate every false way.
God is raising up in this generation those who will be uncompromisingly righteous to stand for Him in this secular and increasingly godless culture. There always comes a time when what we say we believe is put to a test. At those times our highest loyalty has to be to the Truth (Jesus is the Truth John14:6 and the Truth is in Jesus Ephesians 4:21). To compromise the Truth is to compromise with Jesus. Second Corinthians 13:8 speaks of our loyalty to the truth of God’s Word when it says, “For we can do nothing against the truth but for the truth.”
The cultural battle seems to be about which political party or identity group is right but to the true Christian it is not about politics, identity politics, or group, it is about precepts and God’s precepts are always right. David in Psalm 119:126 said it this way, “It is time for thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void thy law. 127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold. 128 THEREFORE I ESTEEM ALL THY PRECEPTS CONCERNING ALL THINGS TO BE RIGHT; and I hate every false way.
Some Believers put their politics as final authority over the precepts and truths of God’s Word instead of letting the Word of God influence their politics. They have a final authority, that which they look at to determine and settle with all finality all decisions but it is not the Word of God. Their politics has become their religion and God they fight for and defend. Everyone has a final authority and to a Christian it is to be God’s Word, precepts, and principles.
Compromise always involves a lowering of a standard or an adapting down of a standard defined by God’s truth, the Word of God. It is an accommodation, a settling for less, making concessions. Our standard is the truth of God’s Word so compromise to a Christian is the weakening of the principles, values, and standards of God’s Word to fit a morally declining culture. Who is right? On essential things we must stand for truth.
When things aren’t clearly defined by Bible truth, in things of minor importance, and things unessential to our salvation we can make concessions. These are areas of life where no moral issue is involved and we have liberty to make concessions and as much as lieth within us to live peaceably with all men. We must never compromise with what our God has clearly stated and commanded.
