From The Pastor

Dear Church Family,

One thing the Bible says will mark the end times is a great falling away from the Faith.  The Bible calls this “apostasy.”  This falling away doesn’t happen overnight but over an extended period of time.  I believe whether you are an individual, congregation or even a nation, if compromise is given an opportunity it will bring the whole house down in time.

In the Christian’s life, compromise seeks to erode the foundational truths of God’s Word in an effort to be more appealing and accepting.  Compromise wants you to lower your guard, drop your standard until your integrity is impaired, your character is endangered and your relationship with God is damaged.  We must not be “politically correct” but rather be “Biblically correct.”  Compromise is middle ground, standing for nothing and falling for everything.

Compromise is one of the greatest dangers confronting a person, a church as well as a country.  The Bible says, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3).  Here David reminds us in this Psalm that when we forsake the foundational principles on which we stand, things begin to crumble around us.  We are witnessing the crumbling steps of compromise in our nation.  The eroding away of foundational pillars of society.  Over the past 50 years or so we have seen attacks and efforts to remove God from our lives, schools and society.  Removal of prayer from school, mocking of God’s Word, redefining of marriage, tearing down of people made in the image of God, both male and female, the assault and killing of the unborn.

When God is not at the heart of a man’s life, then every evil thing is possible.  God told His people time and time again throughout the Old Testament that if they forsook Him and His ways and compromised the things of God, then His provision, protection and blessings would be removed.  But if they didn’t forsake Him and His ways then His hand of blessing and protection would be a hedge about them.  I believe that is as true today as it was then.

May we as God’s people today, be determined not to compromise the Word of God in our lives, may we be rooted and grounded in our faith and may we boldly proclaim the “good news” of Jesus Christ.

“I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.  Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen you heart; wait, I say on the Lord!  Psalm 27:13-14
