Masters of Hypocrisy.

Behold the Masters of Hypocrisy who denigrate us and highlight their own shame.

Good Leadership, for the Masters of Hypocrisy, means Surrender to the World and Follow The Mob.

“Look at those hypocrites!” say the masters of hypocrisy. The real masters of hypocrisy are the ones painting everyone else as hypocrites.

Hypocrisy may be among the easiest charges any American can let fly at another, and get away with it, even when the charge is untrue. For many, hypocrisy has become the replacement red-letter for sin. It is deemed, in many circles, that actual sin is less sinful than the supposed “hypocrisy” of those who condemn sin, and yet still sin. If you look around you will see that this is true on many levels, and that quite frequently the person who calls someone else, or some other group hypocritical is frequently a fairly serious sinner of some sort, but who seeks to gain a higher, elitist, arrogant and condescending position over whomever he is calling hypocritical.

Regular church goers, for instance, are considered by some non-church goers to be hypocrites, because they go to church regularly, and yet their human imperfections remain visible to their accusers. “At least I don’t pretend to be a good Christian” say this level of the masters of hypocrisy. Another way of saying that same sentence is “I am not a good Christian, and the ones who go to church are not much better.” Who’s the real hypocrite here? Would it not be more honest to simply say “I am no Christian and I ignore Christian rules of conduct.?” But, you see, it sounds better, and it feels better, to lower others in the estimation of the world, and thus raise yourself in the estimation of the world.

At another level, among the newer Protestant “denominations” of Christianity are those that like to call themselves non-denominational. Some Christians even go so far as to loudly proclaim themselves to be ”non-church affiliated,” as if that were a good thing to be. What it actually means is that these “Christians” are not going to be bound by any rules established by any church, and therefore, they can make up their own moral code of conduct. Or, even worse, each “member” makes up his own personal morality. It’s very easy to live within the rules when you are the one who makes them up.

Let’s look at who Jesus referred to as hypocrites.

[1]Then said Jesus to the crowds and to his disciples,
[2] "The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat;
[3] so practice and observe whatever they tell you, but not what they do; for they preach, but do not practice.
[4] They bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with their finger.
[5] They do all their deeds to be seen by men; for they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long,
[6] and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues,
[7] and salutations in the market places, and being called rabbi by men.
[8] But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren.
[9] And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven.
[10] Neither be called masters, for you have one master, the Christ.
[11] He who is greatest among you shall be your servant;
[12] whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
[13] "But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you shut the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither enter yourselves, nor allow those who would enter to go in.
[15] Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you traverse sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves.
[16] "Woe to you, blind guides, who say, `If any one swears by the temple, it is nothing; but if any one swears by the gold of the temple, he is bound by his oath.'
[17] You blind fools! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that has made the gold sacred?
[18] And you say, `If any one swears by the altar, it is nothing; but if any one swears by the gift that is on the altar, he is bound by his oath.'
[19] You blind men! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that makes the gift sacred?
[20] So he who swears by the altar, swears by it and by everything on it;
[21] and he who swears by the temple, swears by it and by him who dwells in it;
[22] and he who swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God and by him who sits upon it.
[23] "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law, justice and mercy and faith; these you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.
[24] You blind guides, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel!
[25] "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you cleanse the outside of the cup and of the plate, but inside they are full of extortion and rapacity.
[26] You blind Pharisee! first cleanse the inside of the cup and of the plate, that the outside also may be clean.
[27] "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within they are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness.
[28] So you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
[29] "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous,
[30] saying, `If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.'
[31] Thus you witness against yourselves, that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets.
[32] Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers.
[33] You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell?
[34] Therefore I send you prophets and wise men and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from town to town,
[35] that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of innocent Abel to the blood of Zechari'ah the son of Barachi'ah, whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar.
[36] Truly, I say to you, all this will come upon this generation.
[37] "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not!
[38] Behold, your house is forsaken and desolate.
[39] For I tell you, you will not see me again, until you say, `Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.'" -- Matthew 23

Hard words. Our Lord was a Jew, and He was a Pharisee, so why was He being so hard on His own chosen people? There were multiple socio-political, philosophical and theological divisions among Jews at that time; the two most significant antagonistic Parties being the Pharisees and the Sadducees. The main differences between them were that the Sadducees were wealthier, more elitist and literalist, and the Pharisees were more common, less literal and more Rabbinic. A major theological difference involved Pharisaic belief in life after death and the need for prayer for the dead, notions rejected by the Sadducees, who believed that this life was the only life there was.

The scribes and the Pharisees had made themselves into an elite class and gradually fell prey to the temptation of serving self-interest before serving God, and others. It’s all about worldly power. Remember the Two Great Commandments: Love of God, and love of neighbor. Love of self comes last, not first, and not even second. A common set of moral rules is what makes a peaceful community. The lack of a common set of moral rules is what makes distrust, disorder and the destruction of community. When each person becomes his own rule-maker, self-interest takes over.

To err is human; to sin is also human. But we are called to try to not sin. The only way to do that is to recognize a common definition of sin in the first place. Self-interest, or every-man-for-himself morality, is not the way to do that. Here’s another quote, taken from a lesser mere mortal, but still pertinent:

A morality based on self-interest denies itself. It simply does not exist.
Atheistic morality is based on self-interest. When we act altruistically, we enhance our chances to survive and reproduce. When we pursue the interest of others, we actually operate for our long-term benefit. But why do we actually act against the interest of others? Why are we bad? For the same reason: self-interest. If self-interest explains morality, at the same time it justifies immorality. A morality base on self-interest denies itself. It simply does not exist.
(Taken from The Amorality of Atheism FaceBook page.)

So a self-interested morality is a short-term, purely survival-mode guide for an individual. But man is a social animal, and if he wants a better long-term morality for something more than temporary survival, then he needs a non-self-centered set of rules of conduct, if he wants to ever get out of survival mode and prosper. And this is just discussing the worldly necessity for rules that originate outside of ourselves. There is still the immortal soul to consider.

What about God?

Look at history for the story of what happened whenever Western man abandoned God and His law, and what the consequences were. What is often most irksome to me is how many detractors of Christianity refer to how Christianity, or, Christian Society, committed the many atrocities of the 20th century. But the perpetrators were not Christians; they were Marxists, and atheists. They rejected Jesus Christ, and God, and religion in general. Mussolini. Hitler. Stalin. These were certainly among the greatest mass-murderers and brutal conquerors in all of history. They were no Christians, they were atheists; - they rejected Christianity and turned away from it. And we can still see the results.

Is it time for you to come back to church, or are you perfect? Maybe all those church-goers aren’t perfect, but then, maybe they go to church regularly in the effort to become more perfect. In becoming more perfect, maybe they help our culture to become more perfect. Where are you in all of this? How do you view the rest of us? And, most importantly –

… what about God?

How can you claim that Hitler was an atheist and keep a straight face? He made many, many speeches invoking God and indicating his Christian religion. You need to correct this article, and many others you have written.

Oh yeah?

That’s a load of horse patooties. Hitler, like all other Marxists, was a totally false man. He presented an image or a caricature of something other than himself to the public. As a Marxist, he was and had to be a MEJTML14 . All Marxists are inveterate liars.

Hitler’s public statements about religion were for the consumption of the legions of Useful Idiots he was recruiting to his cause, whom he held in near utter contempt. But he was a politician, and therefore he set about the political business of fooling the masses. Here are a few of his statements regarding the use of Marxist propaganda to that tend:

“He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.”

“It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.”

“All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.”

“It is not truth that matters, but victory”

“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it”

“The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.”

Now, as to Hitler’s views on religion in general and Judaism and Christianity in particular, his private quotations and political writings were considerably different from those intended for purely political public consummation. Take even a brief look at his propaganda from such tools as Hitler Speaks and the educational pamphlets for the Hitler Youth and you will see the real and demonic Hitler. For instance:

The struggle for world domination will be fought entirely between us, between Germans and Jews. All else is facade and illusion. Behind England stands Israel, and behind France, and behind the United States. Even when we have driven the Jew out of Germany, he remains our world enemy.
- from Hitler Speaks.

We are the joyous Hitler youth,
We do not need any Christian virtue
Our leader is our savior
The Pope and Rabbi shall be gone
We want to be pagans once again.
- from a song sung by Hitler Youth.

They refer to me as an uneducated barbarian. Yes, we are barbarians. We want to be barbarians, it is an honored title to us. We shall rejuvenate the world. This world is near its end.
- from Hitler Speaks.

Providence has ordained that I should be the greatest liberator of humanity. I am freeing man from the restraints of an intelligence that has taken charge, from the dirty and degrading self-mortification of a false vision called conscience and morality, and from the demands of a freedom and independence which only a very few can bear.
- from Hitler Speaks.

The Ten Commandments have lost their validity. Conscience is a Jewish invention, it is a blemish like circumcision.
- from Hitler Speaks.

If only one country, for whatever reason, tolerates a Jewish family in it, that family will become the germ center for fresh sedition. If one little Jewish boy survives without any Jewish education, with no synagogue and no Hebrew school, it [Judaism] is in his soul. Even if there had never been a synagogue or a Jewish school or an Old Testament, the Jewish spirit would still exist and exert its influence. It has been there from the beginning and there is no Jew, not a single one, who does not personify it.
- Robert Wistrich, Hitler's Apocalypse; Robert Wistrich; p. 122; quoted from a conversation with Croatian Foreign Minister General Kvaternik, July 21, 1941

The internal expurgation of the Jewish spirit is not possible in any platonic way. For the Jewish spirit as the product of the Jewish person. Unless we expel the Jewish people. Unless we expel the Jewish people soon, they will have judaized our people within a very short time.
- Hitler's Worldview; Jackel; p. 52; quoted from a speech at Nuremberg, January 13, 1923

The heaviest blow which ever struck humanity was Christianity; Bolshevism is Christianity’s illegitimate child. Both are inventions of the Jew.
- - From Hitler's Table-Talk.

The law of selection justifies this incessant struggle, by allowing the survival of the fittest. Christianity is a rebellion against natural law, a protest against nature. Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure.
- From Hitler's Table-Talk.

... Do you now appreciate the depth of our National Socialist Movement? Can there be anything greater and more all comprehending? Those who see in National Socialism nothing more than a political movement know scarcely anything of it. It is more even than religion; it is the will to create mankind anew.
- From Hitler Speaks.

The earth continues to go round, whether it’s the man who kills the tiger or the tiger who eats the man. The stronger asserts his will, it’s the law of nature. The world doesn’t change; its laws are eternal.
- From Hitler’s Table-Talk.

So don’t stand there with your bare face hanging out and try to tell me that Adolph Hitler was any kind of a Christian, or anything other than a typical atheist bloody barbarian. He opposed not only religion, but even knowledge.

Vic

I believe Lenin and Marx himself said these things, though maybe not in those exact words. The idea was that the bigger and more incredible the lie might be the more likely it is that it will be believed, if it is stated loudly in public. Keep up the good work.

Alicia:

Quite true; but it began even before them. Hegel used it, and Machiavelli may have been the first to dare to write it down and publish it, though not in so many words. It is the ancient notion of using falsehood to fool the people for an ulterior motive. Before Machiavelli, there was Munzer, Luther and many, many others, beginning with the father of all lies, Lucifer. Today, the whole notion is almost totally incorporated into all of the various forms of Marxism, none of which can even continue to exist without the support of the big public lie. What all big Marxist lies have in common is the thread that says “if you don’t believe this line, disaster will occur,” and they all lead to more government control and less citizen liberty.

Al Gore’s anthropomorphic global warming hoax is a Marxist lie.

Cap and Trade is a Marxist lie.

TARP was a Marxist lie.

Stimulus I and Stimulus II were Marxist lies.

Obamacare is a Marxist lie.

Human Population Problem is a Marxist lie.

The notion of limitations on “Our Precious Resources” is a Marxist lie.

Gross over-emphasis of human pollution is a Marxist lie.

The need to tax and borrow our way out of the current economic over-spending mess is a Marxist lie.

The ever-growing list of “endangered species” is a Marxist lie.

Virtually everything the main stream media says is some sort of a Marxist lie.

Vic

The Purpose for this grouping of links is to highlight the three natural divisions, in philosophy, religion, morality and politics; what is proper, what is disengaged and what must be defeated.

The Winnowing Pages
Ben Franklin described the division of the time as the Loyalists, the Rebels and the Mug-Whumps, with their Mugs hanging over one side of the fence, and their Whumps hanging over the other.  Today, we have the Constitutionalists, the anti-Constitutionalists, and the Moron Vote. 

The Three Sociological Divisions: The Faithful; The Disengaged; The Faithless. Those who stand in Truth, those who oppose Truth, and those who are Lukewarm toward Truth comprise the Three Sociological Divisions.

There is a time appointed for everything; this is the time of winnowing. We must politically winnow, to separate into good grain, useful straw, and useless flammable chaff.

Against political moderation: America was not founded by indecisive moral wimps. Political Moderation provides neither leadership nor opposition, but merely a moral drag that historically prolongs moral debates and ends up hurting morality.

Blessed Polarization & Political Division: what America desperately needs today. Lord, give us blessed polarization, a line drawn in the sand and a polarizing leader like Sarah Palin to lead us back to American sanity.

America’s return to faith in God is now a matter of American national survival. If America does not return to faith in God, no return to “conservatism” will save her; it will only prolong her death agony.

Faith versus Atheism: Is atheism really just a silly superstition? The Faith versus Atheism argument is at the root of every other important argument.

Constitutional America: The argument for a return to basic rule of law. The arguments for a return to the Constitutional America intended by the Fathers and expected by the People through their Representative Government.

Atheizing America - we sit, seemingly mesmerized, merely watching it happen. Among all Leftist agendas, the atheizing America agenda is the one we seem to notice the least. Like deer in the headlights, we just stand there and watch.

A fatal false premise is a deadly logical trap for the mal-educated person. A Fatal false premise with broad general consensus will always trump reason, evidence and critical thinking.

The World says: Faith Versus Reason. The Spirit says: Faith And Reason. Choose. Is it possible to be a man of faith and reason simultaneously? Or is true faith exclusively reserved for dumb hillbillies, bible-thumping zealots, and unthinking cradle traditionalists?

Behold the Masters of Hypocrisy who denigrate us and highlight their own shame. Good Leadership, for the Masters of Hypocrisy, means Surrender to the World and Follow The Mob.

Of all the dumb-assed ideas in the world, the dumbest is The Equality Stupidity. The Equality Stupidity takes the prize for the most imbecilic of all ideologies.

On Replacing America: Do detractors seek replacement, or destruction? Replacing America, or destroying America - what do Democrats and other fundamental Marxists want to do to America?

Even the very best among us can be fooled into blessing abomination. In blessing abomination we show how we have been mesmerized by the slyest of lies.

Kerry lies again, and then lies about his lies, in concert with the SLIMC. There he goes again! Kerry lies again and again about American servicemen and veterans; he just can't help himself.

Kerry's Lies: The Old, Vietnam-Era Anti-War Chickens are Comming Home to Roost. POW Lawsuit Could Force Kerry To Come Clean - by George "Bud" Day, Chairman, Vietnam Veterans Legacy Foundation.

What's going on with Mel Gibson? Is he really an anti-Semite? I am surprised that Mel Gibson is an alcolholic.  But I am never surprised at any words that come out of the mouth of any drunk.

Still Worrying Over NuVo Consequences. The Holidays have gone by, several days have passed, and the SANE  NuVo Initiative still stands pat.

The Dem's October Surprise involves another flip-flop of their public "standard". The clearly pro-sodomy Party that openly seeks the "Gay" vote goes Victorian for another pre-election October Surprise ploy.

Some Problems with NuVo: the so-called Null-Vote Initiative. A "philosophical" movement aimed at keeping religious conservatives from voting? Seriously? Let me state my problems with NuVo.

Come, let us sit and reason together. Jews and Christians of various stripe and spot can say to each other, 'Come, let us sit and reason together.' But we can't do that with the Moslems.

Regarding SANE works dropping NuVo: Nul Vote Initiative dies with a whimper. If you can't really present a good argument, sit down. On SANE Works dropping the NuVo Initiative: a program that works hard to SOUND pro-American while ACTING to oppose American National Existence.

Even experts grossly underestimate the Marxist zeal of the American Left. The sharp Left turn happened in the Hoover-FDR era, and the Marxism of the American Left has been deepening ever since.

Thinking American, in a nutshell: When one has lots to say, but time is limited. The older I get, the busier I get. Answering multiple questions as a thinking American, but in a hurry.

"We are an Easter People, and Hallelujah is our Song." (John Paul the Great) Our absolutely unique and singular Easter story, and the incredible force with which it struck human history.

Witnessing, grieving and weeping for our dieing culture.  What might it take to call a whole people back from the brink of cultural death?

If we have an inherent right to something, then, who must supply it?  Rights and Responsibilities exist in paired sets; a right does not exist in the absence of a related responsibility.  If indeed we have a right to our job, then, someone must provide it. Who?

So how come we have all these homeless people if our system is so great? The strong "Utopian Idealist" firmly believes that absolute worldly perfection is actually possible.  Therefore, there should never be any such thing as a hungry or homeless person.

Taking a look at Illegal Imigration and Tax Problem solutions. In our view, the minimum wage and income tax have outlived their usefulness, and only contribute to the illegal alien problem.

Farewell Smokey Biorseth; Rest In Peace.  Hello Coal Biorseth; Welcome Home. As we were laying our beloved Smokey Biorseth to rest in his grave beside the lilies, a carbon-copy of Smokey, in younger form, emerged from the lilies.

Honky Biorseth really runs this house. If you want to know what's in any cabinet in the house, just ask Honky Biorseth.

Kill the illegal alien marketplace, and illegal aliens will leave on their own. Why should we "imagine" life with no Mexico? Shouldn't the Mexicans be trying to imagine no such thing as the USA?

More Marxist infiltration of higher education. Public school and the media are not the only places dominated by Marxist thought; even Catholic institutions are infected.

Of Families and Fortunes, and Inheritance Vs. Redistribution. Families and Fortunes are despised by Marxists, because Marxism demonizes the family, demonizes fortunes, and even demonizes profit.

Regarding the 2010 Tax Deal Pledge Breaker: Pledge? What Pledge? How can Republican deal makers even face us? We need to hang a Tea Party target on all professional politicians for 2012.
