Compromising with the World

But you have this, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. (Revelation 2:6 MKJV)

Jesus is not happy with the Nicolaitans.  Who are they?  They were followers of Nicolaus of Antioch.  They believed in compromising with the pagans.  They didn’t see anything wrong with following the customs of the pagans as long as they believed in Jesus.  All you needed was faith.  You don’t have to keep the commandments of God.  Jesus commends the Ephesians that they did not believe in compromising like the Nicolaitans.  Being a Christian is more than just believing in Jesus as the son of God.  Jesus said “”If you love me, keep my commands.” (John 14:15 NIV)
