Some of us may have come across someone with this personality. You know someone that pretends to have a particular belief or opinion, yet that person really does not. They will say, “Oh, I care so much about the environment,” as they are littering. I will pass judgement on this example and call them a hypocrite!
What about the individual that says he or she is a Christian but partakes in acts that would be considered a sin? Let’s say having multiple partners? Would you consider them a hypocrite?
In this situation, I would not, I believe this to be an active part of human nature! I only hope that type of person is honest with the people they are interacting with and uses protection. Others may pass judgement in a different light.
I am pro-life but also believe that the death penalty should be brought back; does this make me a hypocrite? With just that bit of information, yes, you bet your petty change it does!
The point I am making is, at some point in our lives, we all have been a hypocrite, some more than others
