The bible teaches us about being a hypocrite and the consequences of being one, We're taught to go into our prayer closet and pray to God, in secret and he will reward us openly. We're taught not to pray for getting attention and respect of men, because God says if we pray for appearances; then we already have our reward from men, that we're showing-off for.
We 're taught to give our Alms or offerings in secret; an ot let your left hand kn ow what your right hand is doing. so God can b less us in the open.
Being a hypocrite judging someone else for the same things we're doing ourselves, we can't point our righteous finger at our brothers and sisters in Christ, if we 're guilty of the same sin or crimes. The bible teaches us, that we have to remove the beam out of our eye before we can get the mote out of our brothers eye. So in other words , it means clean up yourself and your life; before you can judge someone else's life and actions. Being a hypocrite; is being judgemental of others, when we're know that we're guilty of the same sins and actions. So let's pray and ask God's forgiveness and try not to judge our brothers and sisters in Christ without looking within first. Ye that have no sin, cast the first stone, we all know, there want be any stones hitting the ground; because we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
