Most non Christian people assume that there’s nothing but hypocrites in churches. To them, Christians go to Sunday services in order to feel superior to those who don’t go. Is it fair of non believers to characterize all followers of Christ that way?
People tend to generalize, assuming all members of a specific group are like the few individuals they met. This happens particularly with Christians. Because there are phoney’s among church congregations, people assume all Christians are that way.
False Christians and genuine believers in Christ are radically different. The first adorn themselves with the outward customs of their church. The second group love Jesus and want to tell everybody how his sacrifice on the cross freed them from sin.
These two groups are distinguished by their actions. Phoney’s love to show how “holy” they are. They, like the Pharisees in Christ’s time, love to make long public prayers and show how much money they give to charities.
Genuine followers of Christ are too busy helping others and studying God’s Word to show off. Furthermore, they have genuine concern for less-fortunate people. Their actions aren’t for show and neither do they go around proclaiming every good deed they’ve done. Those who assume that all Christians are hypocrites need to meet real followers of Christ.
Sadly, nobody warned me about cults like the church I joined for fifteen and a half years. How I Was Razed shows the way God led me out of that wicked congregation and to a true knowledge of himself. Contact me regarding this wondrous memoir of deliverance from deceit.
