Two-fer Tuesday: Hyprocrisy by Miz Pink

From the 10 commandments that tell us not to lie (yeah, it’s really specific about “don’t bear false witness against your neighbor” but it’s about lying) to any number of other places where God, Jesus or one of the apostles reminded us lying wasn’t cool, we have lots ‘o opportunity to remember we should tell the truth.

Hypocrisy isn’t the truth.

When we practice hypocrisy we lie. It’s not so much that we are lying to others, though we certainly are. Often, though, other people see our hypocrisy and thus see the lie. But the worst part of hyporcrisy is that we also lie to ourselves. We try to convince people that things are one way when we act another and we condemn things that people do but won’t condemn ourselves or anyone we like who does the same or similar.

God doesn’t like liars. He especially doesn’t like it when we manage to lie to those around us and lie to ourselves, particuarly over things that we should be able to see are lies, admit are lies and try to correct

The opinions of Jeff himself on this blog, and those expressed as Deacon Blue, in NO WAY should be construed as the opinions of anyone with whom he has worked, currently works, or will work with in the future. They are personal opinions and views, and are sometimes, frankly, expressed in more outrageous terms than I truly feel most days.
