Definition: "...outward show..play a part, the act or practice of a hypocrite, a feigning to be what one is not, or to feel what one does not feel, a dissimulation, or a concealment of one's real character, disposition, or motives; especially the assuming of false appearance of virtue or religion; a simulation of goodness..."People who are double minded and mind earthly things, regardless of what it is, desire to serve the flesh and God.
They are playing a spiritual game of fence straddling, thinking they can take from God as well as falsehood and false prophets and false teachers.
Some go so far as to stand in defense of the Gospel, while promoting false prophets, or they are partaking of the "religious" teachings proffered by those who clearly reject Jesus Christ.
Some attempt to make a pretense of defending the Word of God while never appearing to actually apply it. How can one claim to live for Jesus Christ, and indeed may have at some point agreed with the truth of Christ, at least in their mind, yet return to serving the things that have been crucified with Christ?
They misuse the grace of God, and while claiming to have repented or turned from these things, rather continue partaking of the things that God hates.23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness.If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!To put it in Scriptural terms, they want to worship Almighty God while at the same time bowing to Baal.As was stated in the introduction verses of this article, "15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
Single mindedness vs double mindedness
While hypocrisy and being double minded can be found time and time again in the lives of non-Believers, it is something that hits the highest level of deplorable for those who claim to love Jesus Christ.There can be nothing worse than someone who professes Christ, while also serving or advocating for the enemy of our souls.18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) 20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:"Romans "Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God."James "Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
