Christians Are a Bunch of Hypocrites?

I'm sure we've all known people who've cited the above reason for why they aren't interested in Christianity. If by 'hypocrites' they mean 'imperfect people who struggle with sin', it's true.

We are repenting liars, and cheaters, and thieves, and gossips...and by the grace of God, we are slowly becoming more like Him as we walk with Him day by day, year by year.

The fact that we struggle with sin (and are enslaved by it apart from Christ) is the heart of the matter. It's why we need redemption. It's why we cling to Him: we are sinners to our very cores.

So to those who use the old hypocrite line to blow off Christianity, I want to say, "Yes, but we are being transformed, by the power of God, more and more into the image of Christ!" It's truly a glorious thing.

We made it through our move, and I was overcome with gratefulness to the Lord for a bunch of imperfect Christians who came to our rescue. We had close to twenty-five people blessing us with help.

Meals made.

Childcare given.

Boxes packed.

House cleaned.

Furniture disassembled and reassembled.

Piano and freezer.

Three sets of bunk beds put together.

Whew!

I love the church, and not just because they moved us so cheerfully and lovingly. We are the body of Christ: a flesh-and-blood brotherhood with an unbreakable bond in Christ.

Are you a committed member of a local church body? Oh, friends; we need each other.

Thank you, Shawnee RP, for showering us with love and help. We are truly blessed.

We also had help from other friends--Thanks, Shawn and Jereme! :)

The Bible tells us how to find knowledge and how to know doctrine Isa 28:9-10 It is by precept on precept, line upon line, here a
little and there a little. In the Old Testament there was not truth or grace John 1:17. The Bible is the book of the knowledge of good and evil Gen 3:22. The word of God must be rightly divided 2 Tim 2:15The bible says the Lord will create a new thing on the earth Jer 31:22 where a woman shall compass a man. This man is Satan Isa 14:16. A woman shall bruise Satan at the heel of time Gen 3:15. Satan has deceived the whole world Rev 12:9, until this bruise of the true word John 1:1 is delivered to the whole world Rev 12:5, 13 as a witness.The bruising of Satan is now taking place at http://minigoodtale.blogspot.com If you are one that loves the lord God with all your heart soul and mind and strive to live by every word of God you will want to read the true word. Yes all are sinners and every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess to God, satan will not win even one child of God.
