(Medium Mr. Didier Jr.)

There should be two very distinct fields on Earth: on one side those who openly do the good things and on the other, those who openly do bad things. No, however! The human being is not honest not even when it comes to bad things, since it affects virtue! Hypocrisy! Hypocrisy! Powerful goddess! How many tyrants have you created? How many idols to adore!

The human being’s heart is very strange really since it can beat in death, as it can apparently love honor, virtue, truth and charity! The human being bows daily before those virtues and daily fails his word, neglecting the poor Christ. He is a constant lying hypocrite.

How many people seem honest, because their appearance is often deceiving! Christ called them whitewashed tombs, which are rotten inside but shinny outside. Man! You truly seem like that house of death, and while your heart is dead Jesus shall not inspire you, Jesus, that divine light that does not illuminate the exterior but that brings clarity to the interior.

Hypocrisy, understand this well, is the vice of your time. And you wish to become great by hypocrisy! In the name of freedom you become greater; in the name of morale you become more brutal; in the name of truth, you lie.

Lamennais
