Learning About Hypocrisy

bible-70935_640

My second posting and I want to talk about something so serious? YES! I am going through an affliction these days that has led me to think more on the sin of hypocrisy. The 1828 Noah Webster’s Dictionary defines hypocrisy as 1. Simulation; a feigning to be what one is not; or dissimulation, a concealment of one’s real character or motives. More generally, hypocrisy is simulation, or the assuming of a false appearance of virtue or religion; a deceitful show of a good character, in morals or religion; a counterfeiting of religion.

The Bible shares many truths and examples of different hypocrisies. Hypocrisies based on conceit, dishonesty, insincerity and self righteousness to name a few. As I was researching, I was led to R.C. Sproul’s article on hypocrisy. I want to share that with you now. Please pray before jumping in.

A New Beginning…

This is all new to me…somewhat. Last year I shut down my 10 year old website that I used to manage. My life had changed and I couldn’t keep it up. I miss it and am hoping that this blog will fill that enjoyment I miss. I am also taking a little different focus sharing what joy is mine.

What JOY is mine?
      ~  Being a child of God
           ~  Being married
                  ~  Being a mother

And I plan to share those joys and more as the Lord leads me to. I hope you will come back and visit me.
