A hypocrite comment....

A friend and neighbor of mine, a retired pastor, read my book, and he told me a story about the use of the term "hypocrite" that puts it into good perspective. He wrote:

Over the years I have called on more than one unaffiliated couple who have claimed that my church was full of hypocrites. I have always been tempted but have never replied: "We always have room for one more."

As I have heard it said before:

"Church should not be a masoleum for saints, but a hospital for sinners."

Of course there are hypocrites in church; the only way there wouldn't be if is the members didn't have any moral standards to strive towards.
