These are terrible sets of spiritual criminals in the house of God.


Prov. 30 v 12: “There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.”


  1. Hypocrisy is the practice of pretending to be different from what one really is.
  2. Hypocrisy is the practice of claiming to have standards than is the case.
  3. Hypocrisy is a situation in which someone pretends to believe something that they do not really believe.

  5. Hypocrisy is insincerity, deception, deceit, dishonesty, fraud, mockery, bigotry, double-dealing, cheating, craftiness, pretense, dirty dealing, treachery, trickery, and two-timing, falsehood.
  • This is a toxic sin that we must avoid as children of God. Hypocrisy is a great destroyer.
  • By the grace of God, our Ministry CLAM (Christ Livingspring Apostolic Ministry) is a place of prayer, founded on absolute righteousness within and without. A place of God’s power and wisdom in the display.
  • To have a better understanding of Hypocrisy; let’s look at these scriptures:
  • 1 Tim. 4 v 1 & 2

v.1 “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils”


v.2 “Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron”

  • Matthew 23 v 27 & 29

v.27 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.”


v.29 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous”

  • Titus 1 v 16

“They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”


Hypocrisy is:

  1. Deliberate Deception
  2. When you refuse to talk to yourself and confront your wrongdoings.
  3. When you are telling lies with seriousness and perceived sincerity.

  9. When you have dual personalities, one appearance in church and another outside the church.
  10. When you pretend a lot with ulterior motives.
  11. When you are acting spiritual to cover your sins. A clever actor.
  12. When you shed crocodile tears very easily.
  13. When your speech and actions are contrary to one another.
  14. When you take peppermint to quench Tobacco and Alcohol smell.
  15. When you exhibit false humility and you are inwardly dangerous.
  16. When you run down a system where you are earning your wages.
  17. When you speak evil of the church, sending away people and you still remain there.
  18. When you tell lies to cover mistakes and shortcomings.
  19. When your lifestyle is contradictory to what you say.
  20. When people cannot follow you to your church because of your behavior at home, at work, and in your environment.
  21. When you are taking God for granted always.
  22. When you are taking fellow human beings for granted. Looking down on them.
  23. When you suddenly turn against your beneficiaries. Picking faults with them, forgetting their investment in your life.
  24. When you are handsome or beautiful with a twisted and crooked mind.
  25. When you don’t agree with an opinion but are too cowardly to express it and you coast along with mischievous expectations.
  26. When you are engaged in double-dealing. Double standard, dishonesty, deceitfulness, terrible vices, etc.
  27. When you exhibit one leg in church, one leg in the world.
  28. When you relate with people with so much bitterness, grudges, resentment, and malice in your mind undisclosed.
  29. When you are rebellious against the authority and incite others to join.
  30. When you are too artificial with your packaging – fake eyelids, artificial fingers and toes, nails, wearing human hairs, fake bum, fake six-packs – from your head to toe, all fake!

May the Lord have mercy on you.
