Now for my next question: Does the second part refer to his claimed faith, i.e. the faith that he claims to have but doesn't actually have or to his faith that he actually has?
It's hard to say because the text is not that specific. It is a judgment call of the reader.
My impression is that it is referring to the faith that he claims to have... he may or may not have any faith but he is *saying* he has faith, but is not following through, and so *that* faith cannot save him.
