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.
