I wish to know the difference between the following phrases that are in bold:

(1) If you know clearly that it is wrong, yet do not stand up and point out that, then this is not the way of someone who practices the truth.
(2) If you know clearly that it is wrong, yet do not stand up and point out that, then you are not someone who practices the truth.

I don't know their differences, could you help me out? Thank you very much.
