My thoughts while watching the Presidential debate last night:
Hypocrite! You are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are filthy --- full of greed and self-indulgence! Blind Obama! First wash the inside of the cup, and then the ouside will become clean, too! You are like a white-washed tomb--- beautiful on the outside (well that's even questionable) but filled on the inside with dead people's bones and all sorts of impurity. You try to look like an upright person outwardly, but inside your heart is filled with hyposcrisy and lawlessness. How terrible it will be for you , Obama!
Matt 23:25-28 NLT version loosely paraphrased by me....
I don't trust him. I don't believe him. He does not have the country as his first priority. He is willing to lie and pretend and fake his real agenda to appeal to middle America just to get to the White House.
Do your homework, America and stay awake! I have great faith in the American people!
And in my outright finger pointing, (even though I'm not running for the highest office in the land) I have to ask myself ... in what areas of my life do I do this very same thing? In what circumstances and situations in life do I dare to take on a hypocritical outward appearance to look like something or someone I'm not in order to obtain my own greedy desires? .... Or in order to fool the observer into thinking I'm an entirely different person by acting one way on the outside than what I am in truth (when no one is looking) on the outside?
It's not a pretty picture in the eyes of God. Not for Obama and not for me or you when we practice deception on any level.
