Pretending pretenders.

The world often complains about the hypocrites they think are “in the Church.” Yet hypocrites (pretenders) are not part of the Church, which is made up of true believers. Hypocrites merely dwell as goats among the Lord’s sheep, bad fish among the good, tares among wheat until the day God separates them. This verse confirms that sin can bring joy—but only temporarily (see Jer. 12:1; Heb. 11:24,25; also Job 27:8,9).

“As much as we need to convert the lost to Christianity, more and more we need to convert the Christians to Christianity.”  G. K. Chesterton 

Job 20:5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short, And the joy of the hypocrite is but for a moment?
