In the eyes of men or of God?

What should we do about churches full of hypocrites, especially when many of those hypocrites work in pulpits? Mark Lauterbach has written a hard-hitting post about hypocrisy and the Gospel:
Jesus spoke severely against hypocrisy. I think there is one reason -- we cannot be committed to creating a false impression of our goodness with others and simultaneously admit we are sinners before God. The Gospel destroys hypocrisy and frees us from the burden of being phony.
Mark shows how easily hypocrisy inflitrates the church and gives simple but deep-digging advice on killing hypocrisy (Thanks to both Eucatastrophe and Out of the Bloo for pointing me to Mark's article).
