“But is this (too many hypocrites) a valid excuse? Even if it were true that all Christians are hypocrites, that would not invalidate the truth of Christianity. Christians are not perfect people, but they have been forgiven by the One who is perfect. Christianity stands or falls on the perfection of Jesus Christ, not on the perfection of His followers.” (www.billholdridge.com/FAQ.html)

QUOTE:“Don’t stay away from church because there are so many hypocrites. There’s always room for one more.”~ Arthur R. Adams (B. 1861) ~
hypocrisy among believers
The misunderstanding goes like this:

1. I am a Christian.2. I know how a Christian should live.3. I don’t always live that way.4. Therefore, I am a hypocrite.

A hypocrite can be best defined as a play actor who wears a mask. Someone who intentionally pretends to be someone or something that they aren’t. THATis a hypocrite.

(Pastor Bill Walden of Cornerstone Ministries, Napa)

They have to be authentic, coming out of the life of a genuine believer (i.e., one who keeps the law).

The Value of Religious Practices(2:25-29)
the purpose of the law 3 19 20
To shut or mouths

To make everyone guilty through the knowledge of sin
