  • If you don't walk the talk then that is all it We show by example not preaching. People learn to tune it all out.

  • Don't concern yourself with the morals of other people. Your concerns are with your journey; figure out what is right and wrong for you, and don't worry whether someone else is doing the right thing or not; you can't impose right and wrong on others: That's a war you'll never win.

  • Everybody has faults, but if you don't practice what you preach, you are a hypocrite.

  • Thinking about it, many of us who have made mistakes in the past (or even the present!) are among those who want to keep others from doing the same, so they don't have to live with the same problems, guilt, etc. Sometimes it is hypocritical, but sometimes it is genuinely trying to help and to improve themselves. Many religions are very into repentance and

    I agree with the PP. Just think about what you feel is right for yourself, according to your own moral or religious beliefs, and don't worry about the others. Then, when they bug you, you can tell them you are living according to your beliefs and be all serene about it, and they won't be able to say anything.

  • Maybe they are trying to help you (and others) stay away from what they have done. It's not unusual for sinners to try to protect others from falling in to their footsteps. I'd just thank them and go on. Don't Judge, that will really screw things up for ya

  • as for not practicing what one preaches makes them a hypocrite, that's not nice. It makes them a struggling sinner like the rest of us. Let's not Judge. Let's just do what we know is right as best we can.
