More or less by definition, a Christian is a hypocrite. Sorry, but there really is no other way to explain it. And we are hypocrites because we will NEVER on this earth anyway, be able to do or accomplish what we say we believe. Thus, when we do one thing and purport another, we are hypocrites.
It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t continue to preach, to teach and instructor others to do what is right even though we often don’t or aren’t able to do it either. What makes this all so very difficult is that the teachings of Jesus are impossible for ANY human to accomplish. There has only been one person who was able to muster up to perfection and that was Christ alone. Yet, in spite of the impossibilities, we are to follow and emulate Him in all His ways.
As humans we are flawed. We are flawed and in turn branded by the trademark of sin. But the story doesn’t end there. As Christians we are to overcome sin, and as any Christian knows, this is a daily, step by step process. The truth is: we never truly arrive. We are never there and won’t be until residing in heaven.
And so until that time, we are with our imperfections and duty bound to teach perfection through Jesus. This singles us out as Christians as we promote and teach standards far beyond our ability. However, teach it we must and too, we enlist the power of the Holy Spirit to assist us for in our struggle for perfection we know that nothing is impossible as such: for all things are possible with God. To that end, we beseech everyone to join us: labels of hypocrites and all.
