The biggest concern might not be the face that we put on at church, but the one that we wear at home.
To stay away from church because of the perceived flaws and deficiencies of others is just flat out...well -- Hypocritical! To encourage others to stay away from church because of their unworthiness and flaws implies that those who do go to church have it all together. Would someone introduce me to that person? Of course there is only one trophy in the case of perfection and it is the life of Christ.
I am glad that God loves hypocrites, because at times I am one of them. I can say one thing and do another, I can profess my Love for God and hold others made in His likeness in contempt. My words can be harsh when people get in the way of my pursuit of being God's favorite Christian. There is nothing infallible in any part of my humanity and that's why I must allow the Holy Spirit to knock off the rough edges. Until then thank you God for loving and transforming hypocrites like me.
Hypocrisy is endangered anywhere there is a move of the Holy Spirit and redemptive love abounds. The presence of the Holy Spirit can transform "the worst of hypocrites" and in addition to that, there is always room for another flawed soul - so we are all more than welcome!
James 4:6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”
10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ 13 And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
