Hypocrites in the Church

I couldn’t agree more. “When was the last time you left a football game because the person sitting next to you was a hypocrite?”

Hypocrites in the Church

“The hypocrite with his mouth destroys his neighbor, but through knowledge the righteous will be delivered” (Proverbs 11:9).  Why are so many hypocrites in the church?

Actually, hypocrisy is not the only problem.  There are lots of sinners in church.  In fact, everyone has sinned.  Moses murdered a man.  King David committed adultery.  The Apostle Peter denied Christ.

People should not expect the church to be a perfect place.  It isn’t!  The church is not a gathering place for perfect people.  It is a hospital for sinners.  So, whether you are a hypocrite, a gossip, or a murderer, the church is exactly where you need to be!

Of course, God loves you too much…
