No one is perfect. Intentionally or unintentionally, we have made uncountable mistakes in our lives. Some people try hard to hide their mistakes, some attempt to rationalise their blunders. It’s true that a few folks learn from their mistakes, but it seems to me that the majority don’t.
Some non-believers affirmatively state that the church is full of hypocrites, and for this very reason, they have rejected the thought of becoming Christians. If you have come across so-called Christians who are hypocrites, may I take this opportunity to apologise to you. Like I said earlier, nobody is without flaws. According to the biblical truth, Christians are imperfect people saved by God’s grace. If believers aren’t careful, hypocrisy and other flaws can easily creep into our lives. The Bible is plain about human flaws and sins, and churches aren’t free from it. The Book of Revelation speaks of seven churches and most of them are far from being perfect (Revelation 2 and 3). Also, the book foretells the wrong decisions that people make during the last stage of end times.
People like to make lame excuses, and they often blame circumstances and others for their blunders. In some extreme cases, some even blame God for their own mistakes. One thing is true, that is all human beings are free to make choices in their lives, but all are responsible for the words we say and the deeds that we do in our earthly existence. You can boldly declare, “My life is in my hands”, but let me kindly remind you – at the end of the day, you must be accountable to God!
