I’ve shared with some of you that I once attended a party at which a person I didn’t know very well learned that I am a pastor and immediately expressed her belief that the church is full of hypocrites. “Let me tell you something!” I said, pointing at her. “Hypocrisy isn’t the half of it! We not only have hypocrisy. We have jealousy, selfishness, pride, and a whole lot more!” Both the person I was talking to and the group in which we were standing dissolved into laughter as another individual declared that she would fit right in at such a church. And that, of course, was the idea.
