  HYPOCRITES BIBLE VERSE STUDY

The word hypocrite just sounds ugly, huh?

Most people have been a hypocrite at one point or another in their life.

Everyone ... No matter who you may be ... Has a vice.

Call it what you will, whether it be a habit, an imperfection, a moral fault, or a weakness, it's part of our human condition. And though some vices are things we despise about ourselves, some of them are also things we really like to do. Some vices hurt ourselves and others ... And some just hurt ourselves.

In any case, the thing that we must be cautious of, is judging others for things that we deem as vices in others which we don't approve of, because by doing so, we bring judgment upon ourselves, and if we believe our own vices to be harmless, chances are, other people believe that their vices are harmless as well. You could say, that it all depends on how you look at it.

HYPOCRITES BIBLE VERSE STUDY ON HYPOCRITES BIBLE VERSE MEANING WITH HYPOCRITES BIBLE VERSE MESSAGE

Let's look at it the way Paul explains things for just a sec:

Titus 1:15
Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

Look at that first part: 

Unto the pure all things are pure.

A baby doesn't know anything about stealing, so if a baby snitches a piece of candy off of the Brach's candy stand at the store, it isn't a sin. In that baby's heart, it did not say to itself ... I'm going to STEAL this piece of candy ... But rather ... Ohhhhhhh, CANDY!!! There is no malice or deceit of any kind involved, only pureness of heart, therefore, as Paul said ... 

Unto the pure all things are pure.

As adults, we find it very difficult for some reason to apply this to other adults. Why? Are there not adults, other than ourselves, who do things out of the pureness of their hearts as well?

It's not uncommon to hear Christians criticize other Christians about this, that and the other ... Even when they possess weaknesses of their own. Again, I must warn you, this is dangerous business. Jesus had a word for people who practice this, either outwardly or in their heart ... That word is HYPOCRITE.

WOE!

HYPOCRITES BIBLE VERSE WARNING OF HYPOCRITES BIBLE VERSE DANGERS WITH HYPOCRITES BIBLE VERSE CONCERNS

Matthew 23:13
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the Kingdom of Heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

Now, you may be wondering exactly what I'm talking about, so let me give you a few of the most common examples:

SMOKING
DRINKING
(OVER)EATING

There are probably a number of you who are poised with your Bibles waiting to quote me this scripture:

1 Corinthians 3:16-17
Know ye not that ye are the Temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the Temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the Temple of God is Holy, which Temple ye are.

But the question that arises is, What is it that defiles the body? Let's look at a little story, shall we? 

Once upon a time, Jesus was talking to the Pharisees, who were criticizing His disciples because they didn't wash their hands before they ate. The Pharisees were always chasing Jesus around awaiting any tiny little thing to berate Him for. But Jesus told them (in so many words) that they go about changing the laws of God (which is a huge offense) yet find the most insignificant things to scoff at Him about.

Matthew 15:10-11
And He called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

 The disciples asked Jesus what He meant by this because they noticed that He ruffled the feathers of the Pharisees by His words, so Jesus explained:

Matthew 15:16-20
And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

DRAGON BREATH?

James elaborates on this:

James 3:6-10
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of Hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

This is a great point that James makes ... the creatures of the Earth are one up on us humans in the sense that they cannot speak, nor be hypocrites. The things that they use their voices for are praising their Creator, for mating calls (being fruitful and multiplying, as God commanded them) and for self defense or survival. Animals may be wild, but among the human race, the things that we say are untamed ... 

Full of deadly poison ...

Repeating what James said.

IS ALL SIN CREATED EQUAL?

There are also those folks who believe that in the Lord's eyes, one sin is the same (just as bad) as another. Friends, there is only one Judge, and that is God. In many of our studies, you've learned that one law does not apply in all situations, and God judges the heart. Again, you may be proudly leafing through your Old Testament right about now, diligently searching for that scripture that you're positive that you read once that says something to the effect of all sin weighing the same ... But let me just save you a little time with two words that nullify whatever it is that you're so certain of ... NEW TESTAMENT.

FORGET THE FLESH ...
SAVE YOUR SOUL

Still stuck on the body being the Temple of the Holy Spirit, and that you should watch what you allow inside? Well, what did Jesus say?

Matthew 10:28
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

As Christians, it IS our duty to defend our Faith, and when we see our fellow-Christians doing wrongly, to warn them ... however ... there is no room for hypocrisy. Be certain that you're not telling others that something is wrong ... that may not be wrong for them. Be sure to check out Chapter 14 of Romans, where Paul explains this:

You'll find that it's usually that case, that people are prideful and almost above everything else, they want to be right about everything ... No matter what. But if you understood what Paul wrote to the Romans, you know that what's right for you, may not be right for another. If you're one like the Pharisees, and you step back and really study your morals, you might find that they are very contradictory ... But they justify EVERYTHING you do, IN YOUR OWN EYES. That's probably what Jesus meant when He said:

Matthew 23:23-24
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, Mercy, and Faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND

HYPOCRITES BIBLE VERSE TRUTH FROM HYPOCRITES BIBLE VERSE FACTS

One more thing ... Though all of this is directed at those who may be guiding others in hypocrisy, take a look at what Jesus says about those who listen to the blind guides:

Matthew 15:14
Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

So, friend, if someone else criticizes you for something, always consult with the Holy Spirit for the TRUTH ... Don't just follow blindly into a ditch.

There's no doubt about it, we have to be careful, being human, because of original sin, we inherently have evil inside of us:

Genesis 6:5
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the Earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

 

Jeremiah 17:9
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
