                          “The Sin of Insincerity”

   “But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no partiality and is always sincere.” James 3:17 NLT

    Whoever warned that “the road to hell is paved with good intentions” might well have added “insincerity” to the warning. Of all the vices within the church and out, the sin of insincerity looms large.

    In this age of relative truth, we are told that we can believe anything we want as long as we are sincere.  The deceiver of our souls has us all sincerely wrong in rationalizing our decisions and conduct as we willfully and knowingly disregard the clear teachings of Scripture in many areas of life.

    The Church of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ continues to get polluted with the hypocrisy and insincerity of leaders and members from around the world on a daily basis.

    Where is the sincerity of our faith when we continually disobey God?  Where is the sincerity of faith when preachers tell people what they want to hear instead of what God wants them to hear?

    The most important responsibility of any parent is to model the sincerity of their faith so that their children will catch it and follow in their footsteps.  How sad that children see insincerity instead of a real and personal faith being lived out by their parents.

    The only cure for insincerity is sincerely saying what we mean and meaning what we say, and depending upon God’s Word instead of our sincerity in growing in our beliefs and living them out.

   Father, forgive me for all my insincerity in failing to live my life as a true believer should.  Help me to do better by the power of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name, Amen
