James 1:8 “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

Again, this goes to the subject of doubt. Being double-minded is similar to the phrase “trying to be in two places at once.” If you are struggling or wavering back and forth between two things, you are double-minded. This is the simplest definition of a hypocrite. Here’s a good way to see if you’re double-minded:
  • In your personal life…if you proclaim diet and exercise and condone those who don’t follow dietary guides yet you stuff your face with cheeseburgers and never move, you’re double-minded.
  • In your business life…demanding that someone be disciplined for taking something from your desk, yet you are sneaking out office supplies, you are double-minded.
  • In your social life…are you acting one way around one group of people and another way around a different group? If so, you are double-minded.
  • In your spiritual life…are you trying to serve God while doing things of the world? If so, you are double-minded.
Romans 8:5-6 tells us the dangers of having our minds in the wrong place. A double-minded person is unstable because they can’t make a choice. They can’t stand firm on one decision.
