The Hypocrisy We See Today…

The Hypocrisy We See Today…

I have it said that hypocrisy is a one of the greatest sin we can commit. It has taken some time but I believe this, at least for me, to be true. If we look around we see hypocrisy dripping from every corner, from so many mouths it is a disgrace to anyone that must endure the untruths.

This is one of favorite passages as it points to a number of situations in very short order and an economy of words.

Is this not exactly what can be seen from so many?

Matthew 23 CSB

Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to his disciples:
The scribes and the Pharisees are seated in the chair of Moses.
Therefore do whatever they tell you, and observe it. But don’t do what they do, because they don’t practice what they teach.
They tie up heavy loads that are hard to carry and put them on people’s shoulders, but they themselves aren’t willing to lift a finger to move them.
5 They do everything to be seen by others: They enlarge their phylacteries and lengthen their tassels.
They love the place of honor at banquets, the front seats in the synagogues,
greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by people.
