Avoid being double sided

For the purpose of this post, my meaning for double sided is when one portrays themselves differently in different situations. I would like to imply that such a person has two versions of themselves, and my reference today concerns Christians.

One version , the acceptable version is when one depicts themselves as expected for a believer. The unacceptable version being when one exhibits attributes of a non believer. The first version is the kind ,positive, well behaved and caring persona when one is around their family and friends, as well as church mates. Where as the second version is the hidden one, exhibited when one allows the devil to take over or control their lives. Such may be the case when one is with people who do not know that the person is a  Christian. One example would be one who uses indecent language when his wife is not around. Another example is some one engaging in gossip or slanderous talk when in company of certain friends who are non Christians.  It could be a wife who is addicted to spending so much money  on things that she knows would not please her husband, given the family`s financial situation and she works so hard to conceal this. This version could also be as extreme as the committing of adultery by the same husband who shows his wife that he cares about  her  so much and can never have intimate relations with another person.

Being neither hot nor cold is talked about in Revelations 3: 14 – 22 (Please read).  Such people are destroying themselves because they only care about what people see and not doing the will of God. They need to repent to get redemption.
