Truth Series #2 - Hypocrisy vs Truth


God builds with agape love and truth; the devil uses falsehood and lies as his building blocks. The more falsehood, the happier the devil is because he works with lies and falsehood.

The word hypocrisy is from the Greek, meaning playacting, acting behind a mask, or acting a part. If a drama is announced, it’s great. Everyone knows it’s a play or a drama. If it’s not announced, it’s hypocrisy.

We need to ask the Lord to “probe our hearts” so that we know if we’re being hypocritical or truthful.
