Grace to You… John MacArthur’s in-depth Bible teaching brings the life-transforming truth of God’s Word to millions of people every day.
We see the evidence all around us. There is no standard the world won’t bend, no rule it won’t break. A pragmatic spirit reigns, as people do what is right in their own eyes in order to fulfill their purposes and desires. People seldom even feign integrity any more, and a rigid adherence to the rules is seen as weakness.
Tragically, the church has followed the world’s example. We’ve failed to keep a clear separation from the corrupting influence of the world’s system. The modern church is virtually indistinguishable from the world, following every materialistic, self-indulgent trend and copying its tastes and style in every imaginable way.
In fact, we have compromised with the world for so long that we’ve effectively brainwashed ourselves. We’ve accepted the world’s mindset, values, attitudes—even its skewed morality. We’ve let society become the final arbiter of truth, and forced God’s Word to bow to an immoral, ungodly mob mentality.
“An Uncompromising Life” is a call for the church to break its long pattern of capitulation and compromise, and submit to the authority of God’s Word. In it, John explains how a life of compromise cripples the believer’s ability to worship and serve the Lord, and that failing to separate from the world has devastating effects on the most fundamental areas of the Christian life. The sermon echoes the warning the apostle James delivered to his readers: “You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God” (James 4:4).
