LOOKING IN THE MIRROR

One thing I have recently noticed is how the hypocrisy of some is now being exposed. Let me give you a few examples.

The NFL players are protesting for social injustice towards blacks. Why then did the Players Union team up with George Soros and donate to Planned Parenthood? Black babies are murdered by Planned Parenthood every day; the same organization which was started by someone who thought blacks were worth-less. Whose social justice are they concerned about? Certainly not the lives of the unborn babies.

In related news there are new cries about racism by blacks and I even read a comment which said blacks cannot be racist because they have no power. Apparently, this person did not read the story about black college students who are demanding their own dorms which whites cannot enter. This is a double whammy and consists of racism and hypocrisy.

Then, there is Hollywood and lest I go into any sordid details which we’ve all read about I will keep it simple. Last night I saw an anti NRA ad by Hollywood wanting Americans to denounce the gun organization. After what’s been learned about their sleaze and immorality why would anyone listen to them preach about anything?

There’s more but lest I bore everyone with what you probably already know I’ll get to the point. All of these stories show blatant hypocrisy. After thinking about it I went to the Lord and the following verse came to mind. “Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.” Mt. 10:26

Truthfully, if we’re honest we all probably have some hypocrisy in us. Politically, we will jeer at the opposition for their mistakes yet defend our side for similar or worse. As human beings we can be hypocritical about many things but the issue doesn’t really matter. What matters is what the Lord has said.

Unfortunately, it’s not only in the world we see hypocrisy but also among Christians. Since the Lord gave me this verse I’ve been asking myself what hypocrisy do I have in my life? As the Lord has said it will be exposed so I’d rather repent and get rid of it lest I find myself confronted with my own sin. Looking at others and seeing their sin is easy but as the Lord said: “And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Mt.7:3

Good point Lord. I’ll do that.
