Hypocrite in the Greek loosely means "stage actor". Over the years I have seen many hypocrites in different settings. I have seen the person who says they are one thing to get a promotion knowing full well that they are not. I have seen the shyster declare their personal use of a product even though they don’t use it nearly enough to be saying the truth. Also, I have seen the religious hypocrite proclaiming something but living another.
We all have been a hypocrite at some point in our life. We may have taken a strong stand against a sin only to be guilty of it ourselves on occasion. Maybe we have done worse damage to others with our religious words but worldly lives. No matter what the case, there is a remedy for it; the blood of Jesus Christ washes away every sin when we come to Him in honesty willing to repent, tossing it aside with the rest.
