    My pastor is preaching through the book of Matthew.

    Here is his outline of an excellent sermon from Matthew 23. It was a very serious sermon and every now and again, he would stop and ask, "Is this me? Is this you?" It was very convicting.

    "How To Be a Top-Notch Hypocrite"

    (1.) Know your bible.
    (2.) Take what you learn from your bible and beat other people up-side the head with it.
    (3.) Don't obey it yourself.
    (4.) Try to make yourself look good in men's eyes with outward appearances and with works.
    (5.) Seek prestige and position in your church and religious community and family.
    (6.) Fit Jesus in your beliefs and not your beliefs in Jesus.

    I must confess....sometimes this is me. :BangHead:

    Unfortunately, most of us do not need any lessons on how to be "a Top-Notch Hypocrite" at all, at one or more times. :tear:

    I think this is all of us at one time or another. :tear:

    I'm really looking forward to the day my sin nature is removed from this dying body.
