All the time, just google Pat Robertson, the richest evangelical christian in the world (american of course) has not donated a penny to any charity and employs slave labour in south african diamond mines..
What else is one supposed to use as labor in a S.African diamond mine?!?
I think everybody is hypocritical whether they would like to admit it or not.
i think everybody is hypocritical some time in life...
I think your question is very much about your father and nothing to do with Christianity. Please do not think that all Christians believe as he does.
If you look up the word "Hypocrite" in the dictionary, you will find only references to Southern Baptist.
I think everyone is hypocritical. Some hypocrisy is just easier to spot than others.
They all think differently, have their own views.
All religions are hypocritical. Its not just a Christian thing.
Your father does not represent all christians......However I will say that a fair share of their number are hypocritical. Just like every other mass movement.
I have meet Christians who are hypocrites. I have meet Christians who are more open minded then atheists or any other religion. I don't like Big-Name-Religion.
Absolutly they are hypocritcal!
Doesn't matter. Obama is still a muslim
I don't think people who truly follow Christianity have much of a choice but to be hypocritical.
No more so or less so than any other person. Either you are clear headed,commited, and true to your own personal sense of truth or you are not. It has nothing to do with what religion you chose to affiliate yourself with or not.
I wouldn't say hypocritical as such in principle. It is slightly inconsistent to believe in 'magic' of sorts in one place but not in another, however the basis of the Christian philosophy is that only God can perform said 'magic'.
The more hypocritical Christians are those who's views are in direct opposition to those of Christ who was a pacifist, anti-wealth, anti-war, anti-death penalty, big on equality, tolerance etc. Big on giving to the poor and free healthcare.
Being religious(Christian or not) is okay, but being a religious nut, is definitely hypocritical and much more.
sure, why not?
SOME are, sure.
But you're implying that ALL are ba
ALSO, many NON-Christians are hypocrites too.
BLAME OBAMA! AM I RIGHT?!
Michelle this time.
Michelle's not an Obama?
Uh, it's HER last name...
Some are? Read the bible and then ask yourself if there are truly ANY Christians who follow the word of god.
