What is hypocrisy?
It's unpleasant to learn that a person who is soI sincerely sympathized with you, only played the role of a friend. Why did he do this and what did he do? It turns out that hypocrisy is the cause of deceit and cunning. Let's see what hypocrisy is so that it can easily be recognized in people.
The manifestation of hypocrisy
And, you know, where did the word "hypocrite" come from? This Greek word (chi-on-cry-tes) means "one who corresponds" or "one who plays". It was used in Greek and Roman theaters to refer to actors on stage who wore masks. Now this word is used as a metaphor, pointing to a pretending person. So, what is hypocrisy? Hypocrisy is insincere behavior, a forgery of feelings and beliefs that a person does not possess. Such a person, figuratively speaking, has two hearts: he sets one for the public, and the other achieves his own selfish goals. And how offensive, when a gullible person is deceived by a smile, flattery and deeds that are only pretense!
