Uncompromised Truth

“But we did not yield in subjection to them for even an hour, so that the truth of the gospel would remain with you.” (Galatians 2:5)

When Paul and Barnabas spoke with the brethren in Jerusalem about accepting the Gentiles without requiring circumcision – it was an unpopular view.  Their lives became increasingly difficult because they refused to budge and accept circumcision.  Paul knew that if he would only compromise a little bit, life would get a lot easier… but it was a compromise he was unwilling to make.

We cannot afford to bend truth to the whims of culture or tradition because making that compromise removes the “truth of the gospel”.  The good news must remain preserved though the world would happily have us adjust and constantly pressures us to do so.

The gospel cannot be subject to man; man must be subject to the gospel.

Matthew 4:4 #Biblebites
