Per Strong’s Greek Lexicon a part of Strong’s Concordance a “hypocrite” is an actor under an assumed character.
An actor. People are acting like they are “Christian” and if they gave out Oscars or Golden Globes for it there would be a lot of statutes being handed out and placed upon mantles.
Being “Christian” is not an act. It is an actual change of behavior. The person you once were no longer exists. Yet most live the exact same life they have lived since birth and call themselves “Christian” when in reality they are “hypocrites.” A very sad commentary for most of Christendom and explains why so many do not wish to become “Christian” because they see the hypocrisy while those that are the hypocrites are blind to their own living lie.
