The opposite of ‘Hypocritical’ is ‘penitent’.
This is actually quite clear if one reads Jesus’s denunciations of hypocrisy in context. What makes hypocrisy actually wrong? That it is a way of refusing to repent of one’s sins.
People who remark on brazen wrongdoers (whether they are speaking of themselves or others) that ‘at least they are not hypocrites’ have missed the point entirely.
