Believing and doing

In Scripture there’s never a distinction made between believing and doing. Baptism is a prime example of this. When God sees a person who refuses baptism, the only possible explanation for this is they don’t believe, no matter what they profess with their mouth. The hypocrite always demands his “faith” be separated from what he does, but the honest person never makes a distinction between what they believe and what they do. If I don’t pray it’s because I don’t believe and don’t love God, but the hypocrite always self-justifies and rationalizes his position: “Yeah, I don’t pray, but I still have my faith!” so, in trying to separate his “faith” from his actions he has deceived himself.
