They don’t even fade away. Case in point : Charles W. Colson.
‘When you get to be a Christian, and you are serious about it, all the pleasures of the flesh disappear. If I had an indulgence, it would be sports cars, but I can’t afford to be seen driving one. I had one, but I sold it.'”
I guess hypocrisy isn’t a pleasure of the flesh. It probably pays well, though.
