1) a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion
2) a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings
Biblically the example of a HYPOCRITE can be found in acts 5:1-11.
What is the result of Ananias and Sapphira who were a perfect pair of HYPOCRITES, who lied to the Holy Spirit about the amount of money they received for selling their property? They died in church.
So what do we have here? DEAD HYPOCRITES
Have you ever lied to God?
Made Him a promise you didn’t keep?
Cared more about what others think than what God knows?
Made the statement that you are saved, but not living for God?
ARE YOU STILL ALIVE? CONSIDER THESE TWO DEAD HYPOCRITES
