This Blog will chronicle my journey of celibacy this year as a Christian single, to encourage those who desire to do the same but don't know how or who struggle and fall. Or even for those who have no desire but may find interest in the subject matter. Periodic posts, candid, honest & transparent discussion about the difficulties of maintaining a pure life as a Christian/non Christian; discussing single life in general, do's & don'ts.

Waking The Walk Not Just Talking the Talk A View Into Hypocrisy
Are you walking the walk or just talking the talk. Most of us tend to do a little of both for the most part. However for some it's a whole lotta talk and no walk.
Those who allow hypocrisy to discourage them in their walk with God and His people in my opinion have more issues. Why allow the actions of another to affect you to that degree? Hypocrisy is a disease of the flesh, so while you don't ignore it, condone it, or participate in it for those of us who are mature... patience, understanding and love are still required of us, for those who don't get it yet. Most hypocrites don't even know when they are being hypocrites at least not at the time.
This is a special post by request from an anonymous blogger:
That was good commentary - thanks for sharing. I have a question that maybe a little off topic. I used to be a Christian; not sure what to call myself these days. Anyway, what is your opinion on Christians who struggle with issues, in this case lets say sexual sin just to stay on course who go out of their way to testify in front of the Church, write books, give seminars about being set free from a life time of sexual bondage and promiscuity only to find themselves in a hole darker and deeper than ever before six months later ? How do those of us on the outside desiring to come into Christ but struggling with what appears to be hypocrisy in the Church find understanding in this type of behavior ? For example, I know a guy who said he would never violate a woman's body by committing sexual acts with her because her body emulates the temple of God. Now, months later he's screwing her on the regular. You mentioned guiding our youth, however how can that be done we the Christian adults are not practicing what they preach. When everyday that talk about save the children and every other night he's *ucking her like she's a prostitute (no boundaries kinda sex) I know once you repent that God forgives but is it that simple ? Can he get his dick sucked tonight and repent in morning and do this every night and then repent every morning claiming that he's only human. He once blamed her for it, said she has a dominating spirit of lust on her that causes everyone she encounters to succumb to her lustful desires. (man or woman) He even compared her to some whore woman in the bible. At what point should he go back to the Church and admit that he's failed again instead of faking the funk every Sunday morning. At what point does he admit that he's more than just a friend to her and their friendship has become inappropriate? And if God brought them together it certainly wasn't to fornicate, so won't sexing block God's original intentions for them ? But yet, they continually make excuses to work together and be together all the time. Not to mention that he sexes other women as well from time to time but that doesn't count ?? Can we really be set free when we constantly lie to ourselves and others about what a situation really is ? Can a child molester write a kids book because of his love for children and say his personal life isn't relevant to his calling ? I was out with some friends last night and this conversation came up. Can we blog about it for a second ? Well Anonymous lets do this. I will comment to respond.
