thCompromise by definition is “an agreement reached by adjusting, conflicting or opposing claims, and principles,” But in regards to our Salvation “no man or women can [compromise between] two masters…..Matt. 6:24 (KJV) Remember my friends, a divided heart is an unstable heart. James tells us “…….he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” James 1:6-8 (KJV)

So as a Child of God, we must ask, what is our mission statement or standard we live by? Did Christ live by those same standards and principles? “And are we willing to stand up for what’s right though the heavens fall, and the earth passes away.”

It is a grave mistake for God’s children “to seek to bridge the gulf that separates the children of light from the children of darkness by yielding principle, [while] compromising the truth. [Because,] It would be surrendering the peace of Christ in order to make peace or fraternize with the world.

The sacrifice is too costly to be made by the children of God to make peace with the world by giving up the principlesth of truth. . . . Then let the followers of Christ settle it in their minds that they will never compromise truth, never yield one iota of principle for the favor of the world. Let them hold to the peace of Christ.” (E.G. White, My Life Today P-82)

Land mines are devices that kill, placed just below the surface of the ground by the enemy. In regards to our salvation it is those sins that the forces of evil lay just at the surface of our hearts. Those grey areas of our life, the things we watch on TV, the things we say in conversation and the truth we are willing to compromise in God’s word.

Or may not be in God’s word so we compromise because it does not say, “thus says the Lord.” My friends if you listen to our modern day prophets, prophet meaning the Shepherd’s who we think are chosen to speak for God and to guide His flock in all truth and understanding.

As they give us their account of God’s Spirit Guiding them through His word, you would think God’s word was obsolete and void of any real consequences if the precepts were not adhered to. In many instances our all-knowing, all-powerful, Omnipresence God has been reduced to a trivial being. If you just live within the grey areas of life you will be all right, being good is the new, being perfect.

thBut Christ tells us in Matt 5:48 (KJV) “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” My friends we are all servants of God with a ministry and a message that we must begin to reveal to the world. We cannot become complacent and compromise with this world because the Master has delayed His coming.

For soon, “the Master will come on a day when we His servants [are compromising,] and at an hour they are not aware of,” and each who have “yielded principle, by compromising the truth will receive their just reward, Perdition. But “blessed is that servant whom his Master, when he comes, will find Them not compromising His truth, “but doing and working and feeding His flock.”
