Christians are defined as followers and believers of Jesus Christ and His teachings. By identifying ourselves as Christians, we must follow in Christ’s footsteps and under His light to become more Christ-like. However, when we project our Christ-like appearance and mannerisms but demonstrate sinful and unjust behavior at the same time, we are portraying ourselves as hypocrites. The heart and soul of a hypocrite is not genuine and true to one’s own actions and words. This equates to deceitfulness and a “two-faced” image that is being displayed. 2 Timothy 3:5 states:
“Having the appearance of godliness but denying its power. Avoid such people.”
It is no doubt that we are subjected to hypocritical behavior. We do or say one thing but do or say another. In addition, Matthew 15:8 states:
“These people honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.”
Although we are no strangers to taking back our actions and words, we must not become further influenced by those who push this negative image and behavior. In doing so, we have to heed away and avoid certain people who are channeling this manipulation and influence that is coming from Satan. We are God’s warriors and with His power, we can overcome anything.
May God Bless You ~
