The Church Is Full Of Hypocrites

 

Objection:

"The church is full of hypocrites."

Answer:

Hypocrites may show up at a church building every Sunday, but there are no hypocrites in the Church (Christís body). Hypocrite comes from the Greek word for "actor," or pretender. Hypocrisy is "the practice of professing beliefs, feelings, or virtues that one does not hold."

The Church is made up of true believers; hypocrites are "pretenders" who sit among Godís people. God knows those who love Him, and the Bible warns that He will sort out the true converts from the false on the Day of Judgment. All hypocrites will end up in hell (Matthew 24:51)
