Why are hypocrites such a problem?
Hypocrites are not real. They appear to be living one life style but are really living another. They live a double standard. The fastest growing churches are those where the people are real. The ministers are not scared to show weakness, the parishioners are willing to accept people that are different than they are, and guests feel comfortable when they come in the door.
Lost people want to be around people who share in their struggles. They want to be near people who are like them. If a Christian does not acknowledge that they are like sinners, they are lying. We should be progressively sanctified, namely, we should be growing in Christ on a daily basis. Better today that we were yesterday, but we are still growing, and getting better.
Are you still like a sinner?
