Hypocrisy and Hypocrites.

What did Jesus say about hypocrisy and hypocrites? By far, of all preachers and prophets of the Bible, Jesus had the most to say about hypocrisy and hypocrites. Since he did not mince any words on the subject, but directly confronted the religious hypocrites of his day (the scribes and Pharisees), they hated Him intensely – eventually having Him arrested on trumped up charges. Here is a list of some of the hypocrisy that Jesus spoke against:

Giving to the poor to be recognized by others (3)

Praying in public to be recognized as “God’s man” (4)

Letting everybody know that you are fasting to get recognition of others (5)

Complaining about other’s behavior when yours is even worse (6)

Pretending to honor God through lip service only (7)

Testing other people to try to make yourself look superior (8)

Deceiving from knowing God (9)

Repressing the poor and widows (10)

Teaching Proselytes to be hypocritical (11)

Tithing (giving to the church), but neglecting justice and mercy (12)

Doing everything for show, while really being self-indulgent and unrighteous (13)

Treating stock animals better than fellow human beings (14)

Being able to analyze the weather, but unable to distinguish between right and wrong (15)

Jesus indicated that those who practiced hypocrisy would be sent to hell (16) indicating that they were really non-believers. In other books of the New Testament, the writers associate hypocrisy with such things as evil (17), lying (18), perverting the gospel (19), envy and slander (20), and jealousy with selfish ambition (21), James contrasts the evil of hypocrisy with the “wisdom from above,” which is characterized as being “pure, peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering (21).

This is by no way the complete rebuke that Jesus laid down onto the Scribes and Pharisees. The bible contains the rest. This is just a selection of how far mankind has gone into Hypocrisy, especially us Christians. We are not doing the right work according to scripture in it’s entirety. All Leaders that are in high places falls short and causes the common people that they are supposed to do good for, fall short as well. We all need to relearn who we really are and what we are supposed to be doing in God’s eyes. These teachings exist under Spiritual and Universal Law, molded into legal and Moral laws.
