Isa. 9:17: “… for everyone is a hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaks folly. For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.” Well God thinks that everyone is a hypocrite. The only one not a hypocrite is Jesus. But people today thinks hypocrite as double-life person.
Like a person that goes to church then gets out doesn’t live the way they were taught. “They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us.” 1 John 2:19. When you think of hypocrites you have to question if they were a Christian in the first place. Then we have to question if all of us are really Christians.
A Christian struggling with sin is NOT a hypocrite. All Christians struggle with sin. There is no one in the church who does not constantly battle his or her sin. I think a hypocrite is a person that goes to church and doesn’t see the whole truth though they think they do and after they go out and live without any thought of God.
Judas was a straight up hypocrite because he turned away from God and took his life because of it. Sin got in-between Judas and Jesus, so if clearly people can see that sin is in-between you and God. Then you need to look at yourself and sin what sin is in-between you and God.
