People may not always know the extent to which they themselves have syncretized and compromised their beliefs with the philosophies of this world because each of us has an immense ability to be self-deceived (Jer. 17:9)…As Hosea indicates, a belief system that simply accepts this world's thinking and combines it with a few Bible verses looks and acts like an unholy prostitution of true faith. (Gary V. Smith, The NIV Application Commentary: Hosea/Amos/Micah, p.71)
