  • a hypocrite is someone who says one thing, yet does another. i don't really think everyone is....some of us practice what we preach.

  • A hypocrite is simply a person who preaches one thing but does another. And no, not everyone is one.

  • "I don't think everyone is one I just think people like using the word."

    Oh, I totally agree with you there. Same goes with words like "ignorant" and "uninformed". It seems those are thrown around every time someone has a different opinion.

  • I think that if you try to live your life to a higher standard and people recognize you as an example and you falter in one way or another people will accuse you of hypocrisy when really we are just fallible humans. And I believe that to be the case with not only Christians but other denominations, celebrities, teachers, anyone who is expected to act or live by a certain standard.

  • Yes, we make mistakes but the better person will take responsibility and change for the best. Those who act like they make no mistakes really scare me.

  • Why would you think everyone is a hypocrite?

  • I think most anyone who is a parent is a hypocrite. Do as I say, not as I do kind of thing.

  • Yes we all have been at one time or another. Then there's those that are just plain arrogant. Which I believe that some confuse the two.
