It should be… of course and always. What we believe on the inside is manifest in our worship, our posture and gestures, and in our attitude toward our neighbor.

But the proper externals are not always an indication of proper belief. Jesus condemned the hypocrisy of the outward "show" of religion countless times in Scripture.

True, but the wrong or altogether missing externals do not correspond to anything but corrupt internals.
