Compromised

Then we will no longer be like children, tossed around here and there upon ocean waves, picked up by every gust of religious teaching spoken by liars or swindlers or deceivers. (Ephesians 4:14, Holy Bible, The Voice Translation)

In modern terminology compromised often means your email or website has been hacked. Even worse, financial entities, medical facilities, and other vital records can be infiltrated. Your personal information may be used for deceitful purposes. Hackers can steal your identity and ruin your reputation.

Apostle Paul’s letter to the congregation suggests that deceivers had infiltrated the Christian congregation at Ephesus, trying to compromise their identity with Jesus. He tells them to be vigilant, stand strong, and be aware of deceivers. His message to the modern church might be interpreted as “Act like adults, and don’t be misled by those who would steal your Christian identity.”

Prayer: Lord Jesus, in these times of nothing matters but sincerity in what one believes, I will not compromise. You are the Christ, my Savior. Amen.
