Adding on to this, true Christians should model their lives after Jesus and live on the fruits of the spirit. You can tell a real Christian from a fake by the way they act. You can't just believe what John 3:16 sums up and expect to get your ticket into heaven, but you must act the way that Jesus tells us to act (again, fruits of the spirit).
This. Just... just this. You, my friend, are correct in every way.
