“There is much loose, unscriptural thinking and practice on the prowl today and many Christians are falling for it. The way of least-resistance becomes the philosophy of many who follow the way of compromise and disobedience in this apostate, Laodicean age. I see these things happening in a crescendo that is moving surreptitiously toward the darkness of the anti-christ. I’m moved with awe and fear as I see men who a few years ago stood for fundamentalism now falling into the insidious clutches of compromise and disobedience. What has happened to such scriptures as the following: ‘Can two walk together, except they be agreed?; Amos 3:3 … There is no doubt in my mind that our leaders, many of them envisioning dreams of personal greatness and bit by the virus of bigness, have been led astray into unscriptural channels of compromise. … Let’s not support compromise! Let’s arise to the need of the hour, pay the price whatever the cost, and ‘stand in the gap before men for the land.’ It may cost! It may hurt! We may lose some friends! I may lose meetings over the issue, but I have spent 45 years in the gospel ministry and I don’t want to spend my sunset years of my life walking arm in arm with ecumenical compromise and dishonoring associations. We may not walk with the majority but we can be a fundamental minority. This was true in Christ’s day as well as Paul’s and it can be true of us being faithful”

Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
