Are You a Christian Pretender?


Jesus hates religious pretense, but He loves the pretenders! He gave His life for hypocrites just like us.

"Behold, I am insignificant; what can I reply to Thee? I lay my hand on my mouth." - Job 40:4

This is a special message, and it’s one that I didn’t particularly enjoy writing. However, it needs to be said again and again.

This message is to all church-going pretenders out there – the ones who look heavenly on Sunday, but live like hell Monday through Saturday. You look good on the outside, but when God looks at your insides – inside your heart – it’s a dirty mess!

I’ve got bad news for you. Jesus hates religious pretense. But I’ve also got good news. He loves the pretenders! He gave His life for hypocrites like you and me. The end of being a religious pretenders is to admit our sin separates us from God; then ask Christ’s forgiveness; then believe to be right with God is our only hope for change.

And here’s the irony: When we begin to be more real with God and with others, we begin to be more like Jesus. He’s the only person who has ever lived without any trace of pretense.
