“From the Greek ‘hypo’ (under) and ‘krinein’ (to decide or distinguish), the word ‘hypocrisy’ literally means to make a decision by hiding it under. That’s how we often deal with our sins. To appear ‘good/nice,’ we conceal our sins by cover-ups, excuses, and denials. Only Michael Jackson confesses ‘I’m bad.’ (But even his acknowledgment really means ‘I’m good!’) In today’s ‘culture of victims,’ we’ve all become specialists in blaming others, circumstances, Satan, and even God. To be forgiven and healed, true confession must take ownership of our bad attitudes, choices, words, and actions. Choose to be a sinner than remain a hypocrite, for hypocrisy is an unpardonable sin.”–Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
