Hypocrites Are Not An Excuse

There are people who do not follow Jesus because of the hypocrites who say they are following Jesus. By definition, hypocrites are play actors, fakers, pretenders. We know that! Do we think Jesus does not know that?

People who make this excuse are not following Jesus because of other people who are not following Jesus. That makes no sense at all. But people who love to sin are not rational.

Here is what Jesus says:

“But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matt. 24:48-51)

These people will end up in the same hell as the hypocrites are in: “…assign him a place with the hypocrites.”
