Absolute is defined as, " " and "certain". As I think of our society, I have come to realize that their are few absolutes. We are willing to embrace political movements and beliefs that a few short years ago would have been considered unimaginable. We have compromised as a society and culture. Our attempts at absolutes include advertisements such as "No Fear" or political slogans including "Change" (change was certain).
Our founding fathers envisioned a country that included the freedom of religion, but we live in a society of intolerance toward religion preached as tolerance of sin. Society will become darker and the church will shine brighter. My concern is for our society, but I am more concerned that the doctrine of the Christian Church is not absolute. Compromising the doctrine is not acceptable. We must be part of a "no compromise" church preaching the truth of God's Word.
I am heart broken by those that have compromised their doctrine. Whether it is done to have more people in a church building or because they view certain doctrines as constricting to their lifestyle, we may never know.
