That's a good question. I'm not sure you can make a blanket statement about whether it's better to fake it or to refrain. It seems so particular to the circumstances. I do think sometimes outward action can form us inwardly, but at other times it can inflate spiritual pride and get in the way of real spiritual growth and can in fact do more harm than good to the other person as well. Christians acting hypocritically have often done more harm to the cause than good. I'm thinking too of cases like Dickens Mrs Jellyby who pours all her energy into the foreign missions while neglecting her own children.
My baptism day, Dec 26, is also my younger sister's birthday and my younger brother's name day. It is fun to see them all line up like that.
