Faith is dead: James 2.17

“So also faith, if it does not have works, is dead being by itself.”

James 2.17

James is the book of action. He stresses how important it is to live out one’s faith, but always in the shadow of God’s help and guidance. Faith that does nothing is dead.

Teaching is not done as an intellectual exercise or to satisfy curiosity, but to direct Christians in God-approved works. From beginning to end, approved faith must engage in approved actions.
