“To The Unbelieving” ( Titus 1: 15-16, HCSB ) by Carley Evans

Hypocrites — people who pretend to believe that which they know in their heart they do not believe — “are detestable, disobedient, and disqualified for any good work.” (Titus 1:16) These are the “unbelieving” who “profess to know God” but do not know Him at all. They do not know Him; therefore, they do not believe in Him.

“To the pure, everything is pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure.” (Titus 1:15)

Hypocrites are people whose “minds and consciences are defiled.” To them, “nothing is pure.” (Titus 1:15) Everything is suspect; everything is filthy. They are “full of empty talk and deception.” They teach “in order to get money dishonestly.” (Titus 1:10, 11)

Hypocrites are pretenders.

    The Scriptures tell Carley us, a Hypocrite is someone whp preaches something but does something differant as we can see below….

    Romans 6 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

    1 John 2:4-6 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word, in him verily is the Love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.

    John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to itforever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

    A hypocrite Anne is someone who pretends to believe when they do not in actuality believe — this is why the person can not follow after Jesus and the works done do not reflect Him. God bless. Carley
