The Ultimate Pretender…A Hypocrite

The Ultimate Pretender…A Hypocrite

In both the Bible and the Holy Quran the mass deception of Satan is written about. In the Book of Revelation 12:9 it says, “…who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world…” In the Holy Quran15:39 it says, “…I shall certainly make (evil) fair-seeming to them on earth, and I shall cause them all to deviate…” The more I reflect on these two scriptures the clearer it becomes to me that Satan desires to corrupt EVERY sincere believer of every religion on the EARTH. The way Satan does this, is by cleverly influencing believers to deviate from the core principles that make them the true believer they have become. In short, Satan desires to produce hypocrites. What is a hypocrite? An online Etymology Dictionary explains the origin of the word hypocrite as, “ipocrisie, from Old French ypocrisie, from Late Latin hypocrisis, from Greek hypokrisis “acting on the stage, pretense,” from hypokrinesthai “play a part, pretend.” So in essence, to be a hypocrite is to be a pretender.

 

If we look at the religious world today, as painful as it is, we have to honestly admit there is a lot of pretending. If there was not, the world in which we live in would be in a better condition. It is this practice of pretending to follow our respective faiths that has played a huge role in turning people away from religion. Religion has become less about true worship and understanding of God and more about emphasis on perfectly practicing rituals, following dogma and publicly appearing religious, but behind closed doors demonstrating behaviors that exist in the same world they condemn.  In addition to the weakening of religion by hypocritical practice, there is a targeted movement that uses media, entertainment and culture to weaken the morals of society and make evil fair-seeming to those who still profess a belief in God. The Honorable Louis Farrakhan in his 52 part online broadcast series titled, “The Time and What Must Be Done,” has been exposing how this Satanic force is accomplishing the above statements.

 

In this time ALL religions are in a state of danger and in a fight to prevent their respective faiths from becoming extinct. On a daily basis people are beginning to question the relevance of religion and scholars are saying that these faiths are archaic. Obvious core moral precepts are being ignored from the common person all the way to politicians sitting in the highest offices in government. While all of this is going on, believers are finding the clothes of hypocrisy comfortable and have no problem living a life that is not in accord with what they speak.  

 

Every believer can be turned hypocrite overnight if we are not AWARE of the daily effort to corrupt our faith. The enemy is not holding any of his tricks back. He is using entertainers, politicians, athletes, scholars, pastors and all forms of media in his attack. Do not just take my word, but look around and see how many messages that are contrary to the core precepts of all the faiths that are practiced throughout the world. The question we have to ask ourselves is;  Have we been made into hypocrites?
