James 1:26 "If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless."ESV

The word thats used here for religious means external worship. That's ceremonies, rituals and the like but it is also working in the church, being on committees, singing in the choir and these type of things. Thus one who does but doesn't bridle their tongue deceives their heart. True worship comes from a heart that is surrendered to the Lord. Being religious in outward appearance only is deceiving themselves not God. He sees all which includes our heart. That persons religion is worthless, has no value. It is only a child of God who has been saved by grace the can worship the Lord in a righteous way. Have you ever heard "actions speak louder than words" well not all the time.
