Hypocrisy – Pretending to Know God

 

What is hypocrisy?

Hypocrisy is pretending – in this case, pretending to know about God, pretending to follow his Word, and pretending to love God.

 

What are the consequences of hypocrisy or pretense towards God?

– Like yeast, hypocrisy starts out small but over time it contaminates whoever it is in.

– Even though hypocrisy is hidden on the inside of a person, the hypocrisy will be evident in a person by their outward behavior.

– Hypocrisy towards God will become especially evident in the light of persecution.

– Hypocrisy towards Christ and God’s Word has consequences at the time of Judgment.

Luke 12:12
