Does the Bible say anything about people who quote scripture but don't live by it?

The Bible is full of teachings about how we should live our lives and how we should treat others. It also addresses the issue of people who quote scripture but don't live by it. In fact, the Bible has several passages that warn us about the dangers of quoting scripture without actually living by it.

One of the most well-known passages that addresses this issue is found in Matthew 7:21-23. In this passage, Jesus says, "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'"

This passage is a warning to those who claim to be followers of Jesus but do not actually live according to his teachings. It reminds us that it is not enough to simply quote scripture or perform religious acts. We must also live a life that is in accordance with the teachings of Jesus.

Another passage that addresses this issue is found in James 1:22-25. In this passage, James says, "Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do."

This passage emphasizes the importance of not only listening to the word of God but also doing what it says. It is not enough to simply quote scripture or listen to sermons. We must also put the teachings of the Bible into practice in our daily lives.

In addition to these passages, there are many other verses throughout the Bible that warn against hypocrisy and encourage us to live a life that is in accordance with God's teachings. For example, Proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."
