Cookie a day: Compromise

26 A righteous person who yields to the wicked is like a muddied spring or a polluted well.

Proverbs 25:26

Keywords: Yields, Muddied Spring

Yields: A Christian who compromises the Truth.

Muddied spring: Undrinkable, useless for cleansing, which means that the Christian has been compromised and cannot be effective in the ministry.

The purified water (the message of Christ) has become dirty (the person accepts lies as truth). No longer does he teach sound doctrine and his preaching has become worthless. His message does not contain God’s Word and cannot save anyone since his views have changed, accepting false teachings as if it is Biblical. The end result of his message is to secure the individual’s spiritual demise.
