For as long as I’ve been in church, compromise has been a dirty word. It carries all kinds of baggage. It’s sometimes used to describe moving away from the Bible in order to accomodate others. But compromise isn’t always a bad word. There are all kinds of issues in which we should compromise, especially when it’s not a matter of obedience. I compromise with my wife all the time. Within the church, compromise can actually be a beautiful concept. It’s not the only way – sometimes you can find a solution in which nobody has to lose and nobody compromises. But I’d like to get to the point where you could say compromise and other previously loaded terms and it’s not automatically assumed that you’re saying something bad.
