Christianity Not at Fault for Hypocrisy
It is no fault of Christianity that a hypocrite falls into sin.

“But a Poor Mixed Being”
Proverbs 20:9; Romans 3:9–20
The plain truth is that there is no literal and absolute perfection among true Christians, so long as they are in the body. The best and brightest of God’s saints is but a poor mixed being. Converted, renewed, and sanctified though he be, he is still compassed with infirmity.
