Text: Judges 2:11-23
It is the slow fade that gets us where we don’t want to be without realizing that we don’t want to be there. The snare of the slow fade doesn’t begin with a radically aware and auspicious decision. It begins with an abdication of what we know is right and what we know to be righteous. The slow fade is otherwise known as the Hindrance of Compromise. We are always one decision, one word, one action away from damaging what has taken, perhaps, years to develop. We will discover in our study of the Word that the Israelites were living in a day of pluralism – not so different than today. We need to shift from the Hindrance of Compromise to the Hope of Christ.
