Philippians 3:12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
One major argument you might hear against the church is “they are hypocrites,” people who act or teach a certain way at church but might not always live that way at home. Let’s be honest. The Bible is a perfect book written by a perfect God. However, we’re all imperfect people. As an example, let’s say you went to the gym and you noticed a lot of people there were out of shape. So you got mad at them and left because obviously the gym is full of people who act like they care about their health at the gym, but not all the time. After a while of not exercising, guess who’s out of shape? You are. Guess who has actually improved their fitness? The people who went to the gym that you didn’t approve of. We’re all trying to become more like Christ. It’s not about the people you go to church with and their hypocrisy; it’s about your personal determination to become closer to God and each of us working on our own personal hypocrisy.
