Are Christians Hypocrites?

presentation1“I don’t go to church because churches are full of hypocrites!” This is an increasingly common sentiment. But is it true? Are churches full of hypocrites?

Duh. Are AA meetings full of alcoholics? I’m a Christian, though I rarely use the term, preferring “Jesus follower” instead. Why? Well, for starters, it’s used indiscriminately by hundreds of millions who hold few if any actual Christian convictions.

But in another sense, I don’t deserve to call myself a Christian: the word Christian (“like Christ”) is believed to have been coined by Roman detractors as a put-down (“You’re like that Jesus guy!”). And I’m not worthy of such a put-down. Yet.

AA members address meetings with, “Hello, I’m __________ and I’m an alcoholic (or addict).” They say this regardless of whether they fell off the wagon yesterday or have been a “recovering alcoholic” for fifty years. Why? Because they know their addiction never really goes away. They live “one day at a time,” and even then they need others to help them do it.

It’s the same with “recovering hypocrites.”

“Oh, you’re just making excuses,” some may say. “If your Christianity was real, or if Christianity itself was real, you wouldn’t be a hypocrite anymore!”


We live in a broken world. Everyone is broken, and our brokenness takes many forms. Here’s a quick insight into my brokenness: I have ADHD and if I had a nickel for every time I’ve ever offended someone by (quotes indicate things I’ve been accused of many times) “ignoring” them or “arrogantly” “rolling over” them with my “own ideas” rather than “respecting” “their opinions,” which I missed because I was lost in thought, or watching a car go by, or… Well, let’s just say I’d have a corner on the world’s nickel supply. So, to everyone I’ve ever offended: I’m sorry. Seriously.


I didn’t get “saved” from my ADHD when I became a Jesus follower any more than short people get saved from their shortness or Scots get saved from their red-headedness.

Everyone is broken. But not everyone’s brokenness is label-able. Many suffer from what I call “normative brokenness,” i.e. undiagnosed pathologies. For example: I know a man who is extremely successful, a leader. Why? Because he believes he should lead–even when he shouldn’t. He doesn’t understand sensitive or gifted people, and routinely ignores them. Except when he prays. And then—every now and then—God humbles him.

Humility is not “natural” for him because his undiagnosed pathology is hard-wired into him, just as my ADHD is into me. He too is a recovering hypocrite. And, no, he didn’t get “healed” of his hypocrisy when he became a Jesus follower either.

What we did get was a way of overcoming our hypocrisies. It’s called prayer. It’s our 12 Step program, our hotline and our sponsorship all rolled into one. How often do I pray? As often as needed. Which is pretty much every minute of every hour of every day (I Thessalonians 5:17).

It’s a powerful thing, prayer. But it’s not magic. It only works because there’s Someone at the other end. And it’s gradually changing me despite my broken nature. I’m still me, but now I’m me-being-transformed-by-Him. And that that makes all the difference.

Life as a recovering hypocrite isn’t a downhill slide into happy land—for me or for the people I’ve wounded. But it’s better than being a hypocrite in denial, which the world has even more of than it does recovering hypocrites.Law+%26+Order+SVU+rapist+anonymous+kelli+giddish+thomas+sadoski

I headed this post with a snarky cartoon because, yes, churches fall short. Or rather their members do. We’re just a bunch of recovering hypocrites, after all. So…want to join us?

You can bring your pathology.

  3. Love is the prevention, not the cure that digs into the skin through a syringe to make us “high”. It is the vaccine, the method of protecting future harm from being contracted.

    Yet, in our current society, where we repeat the words “live in the moment”, we are believing more-so in that “cure” versus the “vaccine”. So much we will believe in “living in the moment”, that we no longer “live for the future”. Love, as an emotion, leads, towards that future. It leads a stray sheep over to where it needs to belong, at the embrace of the Shepherd.

    Only the leader sees the future, and that leader will be the oldest of the bunch. It is because the leader has taken the most responsibility for any endeavor, and because the leader takes on the weightiest burden, the leader suffers the most. They may be 50, though they’ll appear 80. No bravery exists in suicide, and no bravery exists in succumbing to one’s own weakness, when they could be that leader, and take up the needed responsibility.

    Love prevents, by creating a barricade, and that barricade is the leader.

    I relate all this to what you wrote…

    By summarizing that a Christian can only be a hypocrite, if his or her vision is blurred. That is, if their responsibility or their duty, becomes hazy, then they will not be able to guide those who are lost.

    Love prevents, whereas a “cure” will act as lust. What we want, “in the moment”, without being patient and steady for the coming future, for a new day, is not something that will last.

  7. Since “hypocrite” has its roots in the Greek word for “play actor” – well, of course you are! 😉
    I can’t remember where I read it, but the point has been made that a Christian who does or says the right thing even when they don’t feel like it (example: acting loving towards someone they don’t like) isn’t being hypocritical, although they may feel that way. If “hypocrite” means “pretender,” then a Christian acting like a Christian isn’t a hypocrite. A Christian acting on his/her bad feelings is the one being hypocritical – a Christian acting like an unbeliever. It took me years to get past the world’s “follow your heart” bad advice and willfully do what I know I should, whether I feel like it or not.

  9. Amen Mitch! Shortly after I got saved, my discipleship mentor and I were having a Bible study and he asked me, “What is church full of, bro?” I said something like “the Holy Spirit” or something like that. He said, “It’s full of sinners, bro.” He made the point that church is full of imperfect people and that at some point someone in church or church in general would let me down. It was great advice when I was 18 and in new in my faith and it is still great advice after walking with Jesus for 23 years. It’s so true. We are all a mess and we all need Jesus! God bless!

    Just a couple things, Mitch, and excuse me if this turns out long-winded.

    (1) I changed my identification to “Christ Follower” on social media; I believe it says “Lover of Christ” on my Gravatar. I did this for reasons very much like those you explained. Also, being into “precise language” (as much as is possible, in a linguistically imprecise world), the word “Christian” has connotations I’d rather not have to spend hours of dialogue having to shed. Where I live, if I say I am a “Christian” it is often assumed to be synonymous with the word “asshole.” So I say I am a “Christ Follower.” Then, rather than being ignored, put down, or dismissed, someone asks “What is that?” And THEN (wonder of wonders) I get to share the Gospel with them, and give testimony as to my faith.

    (2) I also have (severe) ADHD, and I can identify with how many people feel I have offended or disrespected them, when I earnestly thought I was being courteous and conscientious. I also have been thought of as “arrogant” sometimes. I asked my pastor (a straight-shooter) why this might be.

    He replied: “Well, Andy, you think a lot. You prepare your opinions as though blog posts, in carefully constructed paragraphs. Then when you finish speaking one paragraph, you don’t let the other person speak before you launch into the next paragraph. This gives them the feeling that you think you are an authority on the matter, and that their own opinions are irrelevant.”

    It was a great gift to finally have received such information. What always went on in my head was that I was perceiving the “paragraphs” to be short sentences, perceiving the 2 second pauses in between them to be 5 minutes, and perceiving (most of all) that I couldn’t possibly have anything new to bring to the table, so I’d better default to all my backup statements. My whole “arrogance” was only a manifestation of extreme insecurity, and feeling like a bumbler in social contexts.

    ADHD — and the entire autism spectrum, according to modern thought — is a strange beast. It fouls me up in a lot of situations. But without it, I doubt I’d ever have accomplished anything at all.

    Thanks for a very intriguing and thought-provoking post.

  17. Agreed. And, true, the early pagan Romans with all their gods looked down on Christians. But Jesus’ followers are the ones who coined “Christian”. Acts 11:26 “The disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.” That was the home congregation of Paul. Oh, and Jesus had a hypocrite among his 12. Didn’t stop him from doing what had to be done.

      Noting the phrasing of the language (“were called” vs. “called themselves”) and the context, biblical linguists and historians have theorized that it was non-believers who first called them this, and that the disciples then adopted it as a badge of honor.

  25. I tend to disagree with the notion that all Christians are hypocrites, but that’s mainly because I draw a distinction between a hypocrite and somebody who is not living up to God’s standards.
    All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. As followers of Jesus, we realize that we still struggle with sin (and sometimes don’t struggle hard enough!). We know God’s standards; we know Jesus’ commands; we know they are right. But, we also know that we don’t live up to them.
    Jesus drew a clear distinction between the people who knew they did not have it all together and even appointed one of those despicable people (a tax collector) to be an apostle. He reserved the term “hypocrite” for those self-righteous people who acted like they were better than others and refused to look honestly at their own sins.
    By the way, my name’s Mike and I’m a sinner saved by grace.

  29. Definitely a lot of hypocrites in and around and outside of churches. I’ve always used the line that “the church is a hospital for sinners.” Its the place where we are challenged to be better, kinder, more honest and more loving. I hate to think of the person I would be without the community of faith nudging me to goodness. All the while we are reminded that God loves us just the way we are, but loves us too much to leave us in our messes. Thanks for your post.

    Thank you, Mitch. Insightful, straightforward, humorous. That phrase – “undiagnosed pathologies” – I believe those are gifts from The Most High. The world tries to tell us that these are character flaws or imperfections or mental illness, but they are foundational to how He created us. These parts of who we are were given to us by Him and He wants us to operate in them, according to His fullness and His direction. I truly believe these “imperfections” are our “superpowers” or “mutations” – meant to make us whole.

Karma is real and if you do not practice and exhibit good Karma in your life you can never possibly be happy. However when you thrive to be kind to others and accept their goals, strategies and objectives for what they are to THEM and faithfully ‘chant’ everyday then you will be blessed with good Karma the remainder of your journey – it is NOT EZ but it does work. It’s that simple.. you are right.. but.. not ONLY Christians but all the others as well have their OWN hypocricies so they must always seek a “saviour” from/for themselves..

    In my view ADHD is a sign that you simply have a huge heart which makes your thoughts race ahead of you at times; because what is presented to us in our non-spiritual society is not fulfilling.
    I don’t see that as pathological, but as an indicator that you are on the brink of a leap, diving deeper into the divine, by the many spiritual tools available to do personality-work.

    To believe in god and to humbly obey the commandments is the door-opener to reach to the inner heaven, yet we should not get stuck in the door-frame
    but are allowed, and even wanted to dive deeper into the realm of our divine higher self.
    This is what Christian mystics like Hildegart of Bingen or Meister Eckard did;
    and what the greek orthodox Church still does practice by the means of the Jesus-prayer.

    God talks less to me personally when being obedient (becauseI am begging for love),
    but I feel bliss when an almighty divine serenity comes over me after meditation for example.

    I think saints also did not wait to be blessed, but grew towards god themselves,
    which is why their aura grew so big, that they were portrayed with halos.

        Anyway, I think to reclaim spirituality into Christianity will enliven your belief and make you feel fulfilled.
        A Christian Priest told my father when he was an altar-boy that heaven is god filling everyone’s bowl – but it is up to each & everyone to make that bowl grow as huge as possible.
        So I think this is not a conflict of believes – as I see it we both gear towards the divine, only from different angles (and I respect everyone who turns his face towards god).
        We both can expand our spiritual bowls (and who knows, maybe Evelyn will inspire me)

        I was a bit disappointed that you mainly focussed on our different beliefs,
        when I did highlight your saintly spiritual potential
        and deliberately only mention Christian methods in order to stay in your realm.
        But I found your comparison to alcoholics in AA meetings hilarious and very apt 😉

        I think the term hypocrite means to pretend something one is not, so the most common definition of hypocritical churchgoers applies to people who take their Sunday Mass as an absolution to have done their duty for the rest of the week,
        but I never would call people who work on bettering themselves sincerely hypocrites
        – if they would be perfect they would not need to better themselves.

        Because I observed that the bonds of ignorance do draw us into mistakes, I use all means possible to grow out of my worldly ignorance as fast as I can. (Hence I combine prayer, meditation and yoga on a daily basis.)

        Now that I found out that her name was UnderHILL, I found a perfect quote of her which brings both our believes together:
        “A saint is simply a human being whose soul has … grown up to its full stature, by full and generous response to its environment, God.
        He has achieved a deeper, bigger life than the rest of us, a more wonderful contact with the mysteries of the Universe; a life of infinite possibility, the term of which he never feels that he has reached.”

        Rolf (good to know your name, btw), your definition of hypocrite is certainly an accurate one. I use it in the post above more in the sense that believers often hear it from non-believers, i.e. as an accusation that they do not perfectly represent the ideals they believe in. And in that sense, they are correct. Discipleship is a lifelong process. Even the Apostle Paul said, “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” ~Philippians 3:11

All people are fallen sinners,I was a terrible sinner,like the apostle Paul who said I am the “chief of sinners” Ti 1:15  This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.  Some sins are more acceptable in our present society today. All are hypocrites because we all pretend at times that is where the word comes from an “actor” We tell ourselves and others we are not so bad as other sinner’s though God’s word says we are by nature and birth as the bible says we are. Jesus got the attention of and made enemy’s with the “religious” leaders and called them hypocrites.Those who came broken and confessing their sins Jesus welcomed and showed Love. Though he rebuked His disciples and showed them their hypocrisy and flaws out of weakness to train and grow them for their work ahead for His Church.

    I was having issues with my mom and I ran in to a spot where I didn’t know what to do. I bent down to pray one night to ask god for answers and I received my quickest answer to a prayer ever. I heard loudly, “go to church.” I wasn’t even fully down on both knees yet. I may have been arguing with God all the way back up but I know he was right. I think Christians today are putting too much weight on church. It’s not going to make or break your relationship with God. But it sure is going to help it out!

    Excellent post…like the alcoholic, drug addict, or obese person needing to diet…a person has to want to recover. Until a person wants to recover…there is nothing outsiders…friends, family, or medical professionals…can do for them.

    Universal sin is a curious reality. It cannot plausibly be the product of naturalistic materialism. It is too uniform…too moderated…falls within a narrow bandwidth…to have an origin coming from a random-chance, accidental, scatter-shot mechanism.

    The uniform nature of human sin gives everyone the opportunity to voluntarily through free-will choose to want to recover. This is probably the only way to test and pre-screen people for an eternity in the kingdom of God…starting here with our life on earth.

    One of the great truths of the Bible that I think is partially missed is that as Abraham walks south toward Canaan…God is displacing whatever Abraham might have done in the city of Haran…with a new God-composed life-script that enabled Abraham to know God on a personal basis.

    Whatever life Paul would have lived in Jerusalem as a Hebrew scholar was displaced by Jesus on the road to Damascus…creating a new life-script that enabled Paul to not only know God personally…but also to be able to write the New Testament letters to the early churches…but to improve as a person (Romans chapter 16).

    The part about being a life-long hypocrite because of universal human sin…actually creates the context in which we would choose to want to be liberated from sin…and be in a teachable position to walk through the narrow gate of Mt. 7:13-14 and enter into a God-composed journey of faith life-script designed for each of us…resolving day-by-day this reality of the universal moral imperfection we all share.

    Sorry for the long comment…your insightful post was excellent. Barton

      • I’ve run into some even on here blogging. Christian is too vague a term for me, because there are way too many denominations now, which isn’t what God had in mind in my humble opinion! But, being that as it may He knew long before any of this was created what we would do with it just like we humans do with everything else we partake of while the devil runs free. I will say, I get very upset when I run into those characters that think they have it totally right and only their Christian Brand is right and I’m evil, and they are doing harm to God’s spoken word, and will reap the consequences totally! In a sense they are blaspheming Him. And we Christians having differences of opinion or interpretation is understandable for sure, but when it becomes so pious, haughty and mean spirited then they cross over into the darkness and do not worship our Lord and Savior but instead serve wickedness. Another tidbit I must add here is I would rather remove the word Christians from this title if it were mine to do so and insert Politicians, because that is the most pressing obstruction and calamity we are all facing being caused by these very out of control wicked, pious minions of darkness that we have running around in Washington; and I feel qualified to say this on Easter Day because I dealt with some of them right in my locale for years firsthand as they tried to smother and stomp my life out with devious calculated nefarious, I should add unconstitutional actions. So, if you detect my unsettledness here even on Easter Day you are right to do so, I’m only be 100% honest and true, as I’m far from settled while I continue to observe how badly we all are being treated in this world by our fellow man, too much self-aggrandizement and actual worship of self is happening, way too much! I pray for blessings to all on this very unprecedented Easter Sunday. Awaken People.

  48. Thank you for this refreshing post that points out my own pathology and recovering hypocrital-ness. We are all broken and being perfected through Christ as I always say. It’s good that someone besides Jesus has brought it to our much needed attention!
