We are faced with compromise all day, everyday. How we handle it, that is up to us.
I find myself facing compromise, the most, in my career. However, it also occurs with family, friends, and even when I am alone.
If you are making a decision and there is one hint of "oh, I don't know about that," you are compromising if you go through with it.
For me, acting and dancing can bring about compromise in all different forms. From a scene, language, the actions, the way I dress, the character I am playing, the meaning behind the show/movie, the way I dance, and the list goes on. Sure, I can get auditions all the time, but if any of those things are within the project, I know it isn't from the Lord.
People will argue with that. They may bring up the fact that this is a door opening, it is your dream project, etc. If it is my dream project, if it is the job the Lord wants me to have, THERE WILL BE ABSOLUTELY NO COMPROMISING because compromise isn't from the Lord.
I can know a group of celebrities, but they may be into doing things that aren't godly...BUT they could boost my career and get my name out there.
Who cares? God has more power than them. God is more popular than they are. He will get my name out there, in the right time, using HIS power.
I can have an audition where my character is as sexual as a porn star, so my career will skyrocket if I book it. Since it seems like a 'sex tape' is the easiest way to get famous now, I should do it!
WHO CARES?! Is that really a Christ-like project to be apart of? NO!
God will bless you for standing your ground and standing up for what you believe in.
"If you don't stand for something, you will fall for everything."
If it is a God ordained job, friendship, etc., there will be no sense of compromise. There will be only things of "life" spoken of. AND THOSE are the friends/projects that will prosper you and me in life because God is at the center.

So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
