When Christians are Hypocrites

“Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a
garage makes you an automobile.” – Billy Sunday
I remember when I first became part of the family of God in Jesus Christ
about 20 years ago. On several occasions while attending church services,
there would be people who would share their testimonies where a good
half hour would be spent on magnifying how sinful, evil and bad they were
with a smirk on their faces, while one or two minutes would be spent on
emphasizing on how good God was by saving them through Jesus Christ.
I have also noticed that “accusers” are those who love to target hypocrites
only in an attempt to justify themselves. They decry, “Look a those
hypocritical Christians!” and, “They say one thing and do the opposite!”
And for the most part, friends, I agree that their hypocrisies have reached
unto the high Heavens.

But there is one factor these accusers completely overlook, and that is thefact that nobody rebuked the religious hypocrites more than Jesus ChristHimself (Matthew 23)! Therefore, it is a lack of faithful Christianity that

hypocrites are being called out for, not for their Christ-like walk (Matthew
7:16).
We need to keep in line with the person of Christ and His purpose.
