Agreeing with God-

Just in from my friend sandy.....

Agreeing With God
Read: Matthew 15:109

'These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.
--Matthew 15:8--

The caller to the radio program mentioned religion, so the radio talk show host began to rant about hypocrites. "I can't stand religous hypocrites," he said. "They talk about religion, but they're no better than I am. That's why I don't like all this religious stuff."
This man didn't realize it, but he was agreeing with God. God has made it clear that He can't stand hyprocisy either. It's ironic, though that something God opposes is used by some people as an excuse not to seek Him.
Jesus said this about hyprocisy: "These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men" (Matt. 15:8-9).
Notice what Jesus said to perhaps the biggest hypocrites of His day, the Pharisees. In Matthew 23, He called them hypocrites - not once, not twice, but seven times! They were religious people who were putting on a big show, but God knew their hearts. he knew they were far from Him.
Non-Christians who point out hypocrisy in us when they see it are right in doing so. They are agreeing with God, who also despises it. Our task is to make sure our lives honor the One who deserves our total dedication.
--Dave Brown--
Hypocrisy is a common sin
that grieves the Lord above:
He longs for those who'll worship Him
In faith and truth and love.
The devil is content to let us profess Christianity as long as we do not practice it.
