Well the short answer is that I do dare. Hypocrisy is one of the more fraught topics that frequently comes up.
Much like my introduction to preaching on prayer, there are all the same potential problems preaching about prayer; there is such pressure to be perfect in relation to the topic. If there is pressure to have a perfect prayer life, the pressure to never practice hypocrisy is even greater! One of the knee jerk responses to the very notion of “the church” is that all churches are full of hypocrites so who in their right mind would even want to bring it up? Well me.

Give these a listen and let me know if you think there is anything of value in these thoughts about this particularly thorny issue.
BREAKING I have no idea why there are two media players showing, at least in some browsers, so if the first one you try doesn’t work try again, or even again. Sorry for this, I’ll have to check with my blog consultant and try to get this fixed.
UPDATE I may have got this fixed. Please let me know via the comments if there is still a problem.
Until such time as I get this fixed, if you click here, you will be taken to a page where you can download any sermons from the past while and listen to them that way. Sorry.
