Negotiation is an effort to reach an agreement or solution through compromise. Most often, there is give and take, thus, compromise.
Spiritual leaders need to exercise caution when it comes to negotiating. Far too often, God’s word is compromised in an attempt to appease a larger majority of people.
Attempts to negotiate, compromise, or change the word of God are futile.
Our leadership should not move people away from God and His word. Rather, our leadership should move people to God and His word.
