Hypocrisy: The state of pretending to have beliefs, opinions, virtues, feelings, qualities or standards that one does not actually have. Hypocrisy involves the deception of others, and thus is a kind of lie.
Is there anyone in the world who has not, at least at some point, been hypocritical?
Politicians, of course, are the absolute worst. They speak in doublespeak, seemingly promising all, while in reality they do that which best serves them.
Unfortunately, many members of the clergy are notorious for espousing God's Word on Sunday while indulging in sin on Monday through Saturday.
Police officers may be seen handing out traffic tickets for speeding while they themselves routinely exceed the speed limit with no penalty.
I have a friend who advised his 21 year old son that he could go after any kind of job he wanted, as long as it was something he would enjoy doing. His son responded by saying he was thinking of enlisting in the army. My friend then told his son he did not want him to be in the army. "Well", the son replied, "What kind of job do you want me to have, then?" "Oh", my friend replied to his son, "any job you want---any job at all."
I could go on and on, but you get the idea. It is so much easier to talk the talk than walk the walk. Can you think of people in your life who are routinely hypocritical?
