Hypocrisy Not Acceptable

“But when Peter had come to Antioch, I withstood him to his face, because he was to be blamed” Galatians 2:11.

In every age of time, God has always demanded that His followers be honest and forthright. He has never condoned hypocrisy. In this passage, the Apostle Paul is the instrument God uses to confront the Apostle Peter for eating with Gentiles when Jews are not present but separating himself from Gentiles when Jews are present.

Since it has been about ten years since Peter violated Jewish tradition by entering the house of a Gentile—Cornelius—and then offering the gospel to him, Peter’s behavior here is confusing. Paul openly rebukes Peter for his actions.

This passage is only one of several that illustrates the necessity for Christians to be consistent in their behavior and actions at all times and in every kind of situation.

We cannot please God if we are hypocritical—that is, if we act one way when we are with other Christians and another way when we are in the presence of unbelievers.
