Two reasons truth is essential for hypocrisy.


  1. It’s essential in confronting the charge of hypocrisy.
  2. It’s essential in escaping the life of hypocrisy.

God is the God of truth. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. The Scriptures are the truth. The gospel is the word of truth. Conversion is a turnaround triggered by truth. Discipleship is the way of life that is living truth. Confession is realignment with the truth. Spiritual growth is the formation through the power of the Spirit of truth. And the Last Judgment is the final vindication and restoration of truth for humanity and for the very cosmos itself.
