The comparison of the KJV and the NASB bring out an interesting association in the meaning of “hypocrite” (2611). The choices given in the resource books are “hypocritical, godless, profane, hypocrite, irreligious.” The NASB uses “godless” consistently; the KJV, “hypocritical.” It would seem to me that there is no connection, but I am a child of modern pagan culture that ignores the deeper truths of the Bible.
The point I think that is important is that the godless really do know better but act like they don’t. It is not a matter of ignorance or difference of opinion, it is hypocrisy. For an explanation of the Biblical view read over Romans 1:18-22. Let me just give you one verse to remind you of the teaching of Paul.
(Romans 1:20 KJV) For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:You see, the person who advocates homosexuality as just a different opinion knows in his heart that he is wrong. The person who says that abortion is a woman’s choice is working hard to ignore what her heart has really said.
So? Steep yourself in scripture and build your opinions on the eternal truth not the cultural standard of the day. It makes a difference, for you and those around you.
