In this world, progressives always win in the end. I know that it doesn’t sound very optimistic to say this. That’s because it isn’t. My reason for saying so is that many professing conservatives often compromise their principles, little by little, over time, giving in to the agenda of progressives.
These professing conservatives do so in order to be liked by the increasingly progressive culture so that they might appear to be easy-going, loving, reasonable peacemakers. They are willing to compromise in small ways in the hopes of winning in big ways in the end.
They may say, ‘I’m not going to die on that hill,’ yet they never seem to fight on any hill.
These professing conservatives have bought into the myth of influence. They seem to think that if they compromise a little here and a little there, they will be more appealing to a broader base and will gain a larger audience so that they can finally accomplish their ultimate goals.
Though their motives might be sincere and good, what really matters is what they do and say – and what they don’t do and don’t say. They may say, ‘I’m not going to die on that hill,’ yet they never seem to fight on any hill.
