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…
