What is hypocrisy?

"When I saw that they were not acting in line with the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter in front of them all, "You are a Jew, yet you live like a Gentile and not like a Jew. How is it, then, that you force Gentiles to follow Jewish customs?"
 Galatians 2:14 - [NIV]

Hypocrisy, or moral self contradiction forces people to abandon the truth of the gospel.

 You will be found to be serving two masters which is in contradiction with the word of God.  

Don't engage in behaviour that you criticise other people for, that's hypocrisy. The apostles were preaching the gospel of accepting the gentiles into the church and Peter was still having fears and holding two opinions about the issue.

Make sure whatever decision you make does not contradict or dilute the truth of the gospel. Your behaviour, actions and character should always correspond to the bible. Paul teaches Titus to be examplary always in good works as well as showing uncorruptness in teaching. Titus 2:7

Peter failed to be a good example. Be a good example.

Stay connected. Good day. Jozezindoga
