Self-Righteousness and Hypocrisy - When "Christianity" Dishonors God (Romans 2:17-24)Matthew Hobbs, March 13, 2022
Part of the The Book of Romans series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Hypocrisy and Self-Righteousness in the Christian faith is a reality. It gives rise to a false sense of safety. This is far more common in the Christian circle than we may think. As true Christians we often ignore hypocrisy. When we see what hypocrisy actually does, we should be motivated to confront it.

Romans 2:17–24 (Listen)
17 But if you call yourself a Jew and rely on the law and boast in God 18 and know his will and approve what is excellent, because you are instructed from the law; 19 and if you are sure that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, 20 an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of children, having in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth—21 you then who teach others, do you not teach yourself? While you preach against stealing, do you steal? 22 You who say that one must not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? 23 You who boast in the law dishonor God by breaking the law. 24 For, as it is written, “The name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.”
