If you say you follow a religion, but live the exact opposite are you really a follower of that religion?

Let's just put my example Christian. So if someone says that they are Christian and follower of the founder of it (christ) but they do not even follow his example and live most of their life doing what the religion says not to do. Is that person really a follower of it? Can they call themselves a Christian? Or are they just using it to look good?
