HYPOCRITE

October 25, 2010

I have lived a long life, a period which at present covers a time window of seventy – nine years. During that time, I have crossed paths with many people. It is surprising how many, especially since I am such a very private person, not wanting to associate with others. Even one such as I, must at various times, come in contact with the rest of the human race.

How strange it is, to discover that even though I see at times, this trait in others, that of ‘hypocrisy,’ with shame, I have to admit that even I have found that at times, I too have filled that very same role.

Feeling that with the knowledge gained in a long life, that I am somehow superior to others. When this knowledge is fully diagnosed I find that the only part of the human race I am superior to, is the ones who have just made their entrance into the world.

When I am confronted by those of this generation, who are so computer indoctrinated, I feel like a fool. When I come in contact with those with their superior knowledge of the English language, prose, grammar, and ability to express themselves so clearly in text, I feel like a blundering idiot.

How under God’s beautiful heaven could I have ever felt as if I were somehow superior to others?

What is so amazing, I am able to see this in my own life, but, many about me are totally blind to it existing in theirs. I am able to see the hypocrisy in the religious field, but the one area that seems to hold the prize on hypocrisy, is that of the political field. I am able to see so many puffed up fools that fill this category. The higher up the ladder one is able to attain in the political arena, the more they feel they are superior to the rest of humanity.

The proof of their total ignorance can be seen in the total disaster they have caused the world to become. I feel that the star of a level sixth or seventh grade could do a much better job at world leadership. All the high college level learning does, is turn out highly educated idiots. These are the ones that fill the levels of government. Hypocrisy at it’s greatest. None have the common sense God gave a goat. Waves which swept over the Titanic, that is what all this high learning has proved out to be.

A man with an eighth grade education, who holds his head high, holds his family to the highest standards of God, and manages his finances as they should, works hard many hours each day, is a much better candidate for president, than any who have held that office in the last hundred years.

Not to be overlooked, is the military, and this is not just a
local American downfall. I find it is world wide. All the militaries of the world, somehow feel their officer corps, are far superior to their enlisted levels. Hypocrisy is taught, it is crammed into their heads, from the first day of service to the very last. The officer corps, is somehow of the God level.

I will fully agree, the colleges do fill all these hypocrite’s heads with an overabundance of knowledge. They are filled to the very top with a language that no normal human is able to understand, the result of this tsunami of stupid and very useless knowledge. However, though they have all this from the mountain of useless literature, they do not have one iota of wisdom on how to use that knowledge.

The one thing that these egotistical idiots lack, is wisdom, the ability to use knowledge. The wisdom to use a small amount of knowledge in a successful manner, is far better than having one’s head filled to bursting with a world of knowledge, but not one sand grain of wisdom on how to put it to use.

When I surf the channels, and by accident land on a religious station, hypocrisy is blatantly obvious to one and all. It is sickening to see these empty heads trying to emit a very pious stature. The religious filth that flows so freely from their lips has no resemblance to God. It is so politically correct that it is as repulsive as used toilet paper.

The same can be said about the localized church establishments. The preacher seems to think he is somehow anointed to be holy. That the congregation must stand at his entrance on the scene, as if just his entrance on the stage is somehow to be accepted as a holy event of some sort. Simply due to having a bible in his hand, seems to emit some sort of holiness.

Yet, when he opens his mouth, from it comes the most politically correct garbage possible. Nothing to irritate the different religions, nothing about the corruption that our government has become, nothing about the perverted generation that we are surrounded by, and nothing at all about our government outlawing all resemblance of God in all the structure of the government. Yet, with this very stupid outlook, he holds himself elevated far above those who do know the truth. Hypocrisy of the highest caliber.

Of course, there are those who do not fill this type of stance at all, those who are independent, who are not slaves to the IRS. One who becomes a slave to the IRS, which is a largest portion of localized church establishments, is not one with God. They try to portray a false image of holiness, when they are not able to preach God’s Holy Word at all.

Hypocrite: Definition: somebody feigning high principles: somebody who pretends to have admirable principles, beliefs, or feelings but behaves otherwise

Hypocrisy: One who plays a part; especially, one who, for the purpose of winning approbation of favor, puts on a fair outside seeming; one who feigns to be other and better than he is; a false pretender to virtue or piety; one who simulates virtue or piety. [1913 Webster]

Here are a great many scriptures which pertain to the hypocrites of the world then, and they are just as pertinent in this present world. Men puff themselves up, and it appears they have always held themselves in high esteem. Their reward is waiting for them.

Matt.6
[2] Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
[5] And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
[16] Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Matt.15
[7] Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
[8] This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
[9] But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
[10] And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
[11] Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
[12] Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
[13] But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
[14] Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
Matt.16
[3] And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
Matt.22
[18] But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
Matt.23
[13] But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
[14] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
[15] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
[23] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
[25] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
[27] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
[29] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
Matt.24
[51] And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mark.7
[6] He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
Luke.12
[56] Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?
