I'm doing some reading (as always) and one of the books that I'm reading said that (quoting here) "Christians need do more than simply say they are Christians and go to church, to be a true Christian they need to live their faith."
Now, as a Pagan, this is a belief I have always held. My faith is my lifestyle, it's more than simply a belief that I honor on Sabbats or Special days. But I've often heard many on here say that "If you believe that's enough." Which makes me then wonder can you truly believe and NOT live by it? Or is it simply something you think, rather than an actual heart felt belief?
I'm not in any way pinpointing any one group with this. It applies to everyone. To me, if I look at HOW you live and WHAT you say or do and I can't at least make a general assumption on your faith, maybe it's time to reevaluate your faith in the first place.
But that's my thoughts - what are yours? Is it enough to simply SAY you belong to or hold a certain faith? Or should your faith be your lifestyle? Or doesn't it matter?

I think you have to live it for it to play an important role in your life. Anyone can say anything but actually living what you believe shows the real faith.
