I think when you mess up, itís important for those experiences to consistently humble yourself internally, and as long as you arenít being preach and judgmental towards others, then you arenít so much vulnerable of being called a hypocrite. The thing with the Pharisees was that they were boastful about their understanding of the law, and not as loving and introspective as they should have been; they were dogmatically religious. The Sadducees also had their own problems too.

Also thereís a reason they do it in the pool now (water is chlorinated), my friend did hers in a open nature area years ago.

There was one encouraging bit though where the minister read out a bit about when you mess up you must be ready to say sorry and look to start again. Thats a bit more achievable.
Nobody is perfect (not even me, I promise you )

Every body makes mistakes. You should just do your best to be righteous, and if you did something wrong, try to correct it
