Serial Hypocrites

Do not read the following if you are a weak-minded, prejudiced, unyielding christian who feels you have nothing you can improve upon (yes I am really going to end the sentence with a preposition, it's my blog therefore I can do that).
Firstly, there is not one of us who is without flaw, we all sin which in my view puts us on an even playing field. You have your sins, I have my sins, we both will have to answer to them at some point. Those of you who so enjoy talking about what you USED to do opposed to the oh so righteous life you live today are plain old lying. Your "testimony" as you call it is nothing more than a lie which is intended to cover up the weak moral character that you try so hard to keep shielded. So you stopped drinking, you no longer go to the club, not treating on your spouse anymore; all good and fine but what about the little white lie you told your boss, the fudged numbers on your income tax, the lustful thoughts you had about Sue or Johnny across the street, all sins my friend, all sins. You've just traded the old sins for some new ones and last time I checked there was no sin meter to tell what was and what was not ok in the realm of sin.
And what about those christians who love the Lord but hate a person because he or she is black/white/asian/muslim/etc. It is impossible for me to believe any person can be a genuine Christian if he or she harbors prejudices against anyone because of skin color or ethnic origin. Now I can see being a little iffy about stupid people but then it doesn't matter what color their skin is or their ethnicity.
Some of you serial hypocrites masquerading as christians have actually bought into your own gimmick and truly believe the garbage that you spew.
Just a warning to you, if you’re going to preach your religion to me, please save your breath. I will measure your beliefs against your actions, and your actions will always trump your words. In case you were not aware, words are cheap. As Sunday rolls around, you all prepare to start using words to describe actions that you have no intention of doing, or stopping, come Monday morning. With some of you, the hypocrisy begins the moment the sermon is over, and such people have been checking the time every three or four minutes because dammit, them restaurants fill up fast, and if the Baptists get there first, there won’t be no room!
Maybe the light has not come on and you really aren't aware that you are a serial hypocrite, if this is the case, here are a few signs to enlighten you:
- If you are inviting people to bible study while on your way to the strip
club you may be a serial hypocrite.
- If you attend church every sunday but can not recall any of the
sermons you may be a serial hypocrite.
- If you preach christianity but have not done anything to help another
person in need you may be a serial hypocrite.
- If you pass out religious pamphlets but do not own a bible you may be a
serial hypocrite.

Having said all that, let me clear this up; I sometimes write blogs that have a spiritual or religous tone. I am a student of the bible, thirsty for knowledge. I seek ways to improve my own life as I know there is much room for improvement. I am not one to harbor knowledge but one to share it. What I am not is a bible beater, church beggar, gospel goody-two-shoes, or debbie-do-gooder. I sin, daily! I am a work in progress with an understanding of my shortcomings. I have no tolerance for serial hypocrites and will take time out of my busy day to tell them just what I think of them and their dime store religion.
As always, For You To Ponder.

    I am a minister and even I have to give a head nod to this blog. We must live what we preach for it is our actions that speak loudest.
