  • compromising on what?

    Answer by samurai_chica at 10:45 AM on Apr. 19, 2011

  • At times. We are to be bold for our faith, but I know we are all guilty of staying quiet, in order to keep arguments on here down. Yet, the non-believers are never quiet. I have been spending time in prayer about this,and I know God wants me to be bolder. Great question, by the way. Gave me a lot to think about.

  • I always stand up for what I believe.

  • In fact, Jesus tells us if we are ashamed of Him before man, He will be ashamed of us before His Father. When I get to Heaven, I want to hear "Well done, good and faithful servant, enter in, and recieve your reward" NOT "depart from me, ye worker of iniquity, I never knew ye."

  • I don't feel I compromise anything....

  • Yes at times...but I believe it makes me stronger for the next time. The closer I draw to God, the less I compromise.

  • Unfortunately I have in the past, just to keep the peace and avoid an argument....and to spare myself those looks of "are you crazy." I am working on being bolder in my faith without being confrontational....assertive without being aggressive. It is a hard balance to find though.

  • NO!!!!! I always stand up for MY belief's and I have NOTHING to be ashamed of. I DONT live my life for the approval of others.
