Overly pious Christians

Posted on July 5, 2015 at 2:55 PM

Sometimes I get so tired of overly pious Christians. In Germany, we have a saying that means something like "holier than the Pope". I guess this was what Jesus had in mind when He got angry about those who took the laws as something that exist just for itself - and not as a something that was meant for the good of humans (take the healing on Sabbath for example). Maybe this is why so many "out there" still hold on to the belief that Christians are hypocrite. Where there is smoke, there is fire. If you set a law as a goal in and of itself - instead of a means to a goal (holiness) - then you will always fall short of it and look hypocrite asking it of others.
