Hypocrisy is an evil thing. Hypocrisy is the practice of professing beliefs, feelings, or virtues that one does not hold or possess. It comes from the Greek idea of an actor, one wearing a mask, to appear to be someone they are not. It is “professing without possessing.”
Pretending to love, when you don’t, is an act of malicious deceit, whether the professed love is for God or for another person. Adultery betrayal and other abuse top the list in hypocrisy in marriage. There is no love. Love is without hypocrisy.
Sisters, if he’s abusing you or committing adultery, don’t believe “but he really does love me, underneath it all.” These things are not love. If he is abusing the children, don’t tell them, “But daddy loves you. He just doesn’t know how to show it.” He is showing the real him that lives under the false mask. And it is not love, in any way.
Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. God is good. A hypocrite is not.
Living Coram Deo
