Non-Christians

If you see someone who confesses to be a Christian out at a bar, or smoking a cigarette or cussing, what do you think? Do you think they are hypocrites? Why? Or is the criteria for someone being a hypocrite greater than small things like that?

I agree, just wondering because I see a lot of people calling Christians hypocrites for minute happenings.

Quoting Hunnybadgerkins:

That said person was a human.

Why would those things be any worse for a Christian than anyone else? Morals are morals and Christians don't own the rights to them.

Umm, no.  I don't see anyone as being a hypocrite for anything simply based off of religion.  If they are engaging in behaviors that they think are wrong, I imagine they may harbor a lot of guilt.

I dont see what being Christian has anything to do with it. Christians sin just like non christians. Christians just ask for forgiveness of their sins, non christian do not ask forgiveness.

Is drinking, smoking and cussing immoral though? I guess some attach a stigma to those things and believe if your truly are a Christian, then you won't/don't do them because they are "bad". I don't think Christians own the rights to morals.

I never knew that smoking, drinking or cussing were Christian "no-nos"...
Those are normal human activities that I don't associate with religious views.
Now, having affairs, murder, and some other stuff... I can see that...

The only Christians I judge are the holier than thou types that think they're better than everyone else. I also dislike the ones that "tier" sins.... for example someone who thinks being judgmental and obnoxious to someone else is not as "bad" as smoking, drinking, and or having a baby out of wedlock.
