The fatal compromise made for the sake of glory and material welfare is for eternity represented by the story of Judas’ betrayal.
As we know from the final part of the Great Gospel of John, Judas was truly seeking for social justice for his Jewish fellowmen, but also for the promotion of his own self-image as a co-savior of them and, eventually, of the entire world.
Seeing that the Lord doesn’t show any intention of changing the worldly order of things, he judged Him as weak, unable to use His godly power and tried to force Him to reveal His power in front of the people and authorities of Jerusalem. And how could he reveal it more obviously than in the case in which His own life would have been at stake? Surely, this is exactly what Judas would have done in such a terribly unjust and dangerous situation. Although he knew the Lord, he could not imagine (and Satan sustained him in his worldly blindness) that He would freely chose to give Himself as a living sacrifice, as an atonement for the sins of all people. But this is what He did, the greatest possible act of His infinite mercy and thus, gained infinitely more, not only for all the humanity ever, including His blind enemies, but also for His entire spiritual creation.
