Pretending pretenders.

by The Daily Evidence
The world often complains about the hypocrites they think are “in the Church.” Yet hypocrites (pretenders) are not part of the Church, which is made up of true believers. Hypocrites merely dwell as goats among the Lord’s sheep, bad fish among the good, tares among wheat until the day God separates them. This verse confirms that sin can bring joy—but only temporarily (see Jer. 12:1; Heb.11:24,25; also Job 27:8,9).
“As much as we need to convert the lost to Christianity, more and more we need to convert the Christians to Christianity.”  G. K. Chesterton 
Job 20:5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short, And the joy of the hypocrite is but for a moment?

1)The Names and Titles of God our Father and Jesus Christ our Savior will be respected at all times.
2) Discussion is encouraged, however, respect for other people and their opinions is the rule---play nice.
3) No profanity, allusions, innuendos or just plain nastiness will be tolerated. Decency WILL prevail.

This is MY house and YOU are a guest here and differences of opinion will be tolerated as long as you conduct yourself accordingly. If "the exercise of civility is beyond your ability" or you were never taught by your parents, feel free to take your toys and go home and vent your pent-up anger elsewhere.
