Ezra 4:2 Then they came to Zerubbabel, and to the chief of the fathers, and said unto them, Let us build with you: for we seek your God, as ye do; and we do sacrifice unto him since the days of Esarhaddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither.
These people showed up telling God’s man that they also worshipped God. They said all the right things, but none of it was true. They said they sacrificed, but they didn’t. They worshipped idols. They may have worshipped God along with others, but they were not genuine followers of the Lord God.
Compromise is the word of the day. Tolerance is the goal. Get along at all costs. The problem is that God is not a God of compromise.
There is only One God. He is the only One to be worshipped. He will not share His glory with another.
Just because someone says, they love God doesn’t mean they really do. God seeks for those that worship Him in spirit and in truth.
