Does religion seem hypocritical to you? Well… you might be on to something!

The Hypocrisy of Religion

Religion is man’s effort to meet the expectations he perceives God has for him in order to feel justified and deserving of God’s favor. These efforts are most often associated with religious ceremonies and rituals, rules for daily living, cultural practices, and even ethnicity.

Religious people feel entitled to authoritatively determine the righteousness of others and issue consequences based on those determinations (judgement) despite being guilty of the very same things! (Romans 2:1-13)

The external success of religious people in practicing religion tends to blind them to their own internal corruption. (Romans 2:14-29)

Challenge: What are the rebellious/sinful areas in your life that you are justifying by weighing them against things you are “doing” right? Is your relationship with God through Christ the highest motivation and measure of your life?
