Thought of the day:
‘The hypocritical man has two faces and no cheeks’ is the unique way in which the great Nicolae Iorga described one of the most controversial ‘arts’ that man learned and mastered with zeal during his journey on the lands of the ancient earth; the ‘science’ of duplicitarism or more in Romanian said: ‘the art of hypocrisy’.
Thus, over the years this scourge of iniquity has engulfed all of Christianity like a strange plague, and the result is now visible to the naked eye, for only by looking at the daily behaviors of each of us will you easily distinguish the unbiblical patterns that pigment the lives of those who would they must in fact have been the rightful exponents of absolute truth and sincerity.
Adopting the ‘politically correct’ philosophy, each of us has endowed ourselves with a multitude of ‘so-called holy masks’ that we use every time we want to hide our true intentions from the sight of others; thus camouflaging rot or native wickedness under the guise of a false spirituality, by which we have contorted the whole truth of God for our own benefit.
Practicing such a harmful mentality in the long run, we slowly but surely turned into the most ferocious beings in history, ready to break and kill; the peak, with a smile on his face, instead claiming admiration, praise and vain appreciation.
Don’t be like that! ‘Whatever you do, do it with all your heart, as for the Lord, not as for men.’ Colossians 3:23
By meditating carefully on these short words, we understand today that only by working sincerely and devoted to God’s will will we reach His Glory.
In fact, perhaps the time has come to lighten our lame faces with the false makeup of a world enslaved to sin and then to breathe freely the air of redemption by practicing the truth!
Only in this way will those around us perceive the beauty of true faith, and perhaps they too will choose the path of true salvation.
