There are those who obsessed about keeping up a facade in order to get approval from others or to hide their imperfections, especially in the institutional church world. I think we see that often in society, companies, politics and organised religion. It is understandable for companies to worry about reputation as it affects their business, but when it comes to religion, perhaps it isn’t appropriate for the followers or leaders to obsess over keeping up a facade because true religion or spirituality is about being true to oneself, and accepting oneself and others unconditionally, regardless of backgrounds, belief systems, lifestyles, past failures, and so on.
So yea, if some religious adherent or preacher is trying hard to promote himself as having it altogether, and condemning those who are struggling in certain areas, it is likely that these preachers are trying to hide their own struggles and selling a false image of themselves just to look good and holy before others. Like what Carlton Pearson observed, those who condemn others the most tend to be also struggling the most in that area in their personal life. That religious attitude is also antithesis to love because love, as we know, is unconditional and inclusive. Those who believe in love and follow love would not be afraid to be real as they can love and accept themselves and others too.
