That’s what Jesus said

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matt. 7:21-23)

Here we have “Christians” who seem to have all the right beliefs, confessing Jesus as Lord, and perhaps they are notable pastors or evangelists, casting out demons, healing the sick, preaching the Gospel, but they never truly repented of their sin, and they were never born again, and never had the true Holy Spirit, and they end up in hell.

You could be following such a person.

    Check for the love of money, which is idolatry, love of power, love of the praise of men, love of titles, of self promotion, of loose morals and ethics, which, when consistently practiced as a lifestyle, indicate a person has not truly repented.

    These people were/are preachers and pastors so it’s not that they don’t know the Bible, or that they don’t know what sin is, but Jesus calls them lawless because they find a spiritual justification for their sin. A man exalts himself but thinks he is doing it for God. A man desires to be rich, but he thinks it is for God. A man receives fake glory and honor from people because he thinks it helps Gods kingdom. A man manipulates people, but thinks it is for a good cause. Etc…
