GSNT JAM 2:1 My brothers, do you try to combine faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with acts of partiality?
GSNT JAM 2:2 For if a finely dressed man with a gold ring comes into a meeting, and a poor man in shabby clothes comes in also,
GSNT JAM 2:3 and you pay attention to the man in the fine clothes and say to him, "Sit here; this is a good place!" and say to the poor man, "Stand up, or sit on the floor at my feet,"
GSNT JAM 2:4 have you not wavered and shown that your judgments are guided by base motives?
GSNT JAM 2:5 Listen, my dear brothers. Has not God chosen the world's poor to be rich in faith, and to possess the kingdom that he promised to those who love him?
GSNT JAM 2:6 But you humiliate the poor. Are not the rich your oppressors? Is it not they who drag you into court?
GSNT JAM 2:7 Is it not they who slander the noble name you bear?
GSNT JAM 2:8 If you really obey the supreme law where the Scripture says, "You must love your neighbor as you do yourself," you are doing right,
GSNT JAM 2:9 but if you show partiality, you are committing a sin, and stand convicted before the Law as lawbreakers.
GSNT JAM 2:10 For anyone who obeys the whole of the Law but makes one single slip is guilty of breaking it all.
GSNT JAM 2:11 For he who said, "You must not commit adultery," said also, "You must not commit murder." Now if you abstain from adultery, but commit murder, you are still a violator of the Law.
GSNT JAM 2:12 You must talk and act like men who expect to be judged by the law that treats men as free.
GSNT JAM 2:13 For the merciless will be mercilessly judged; but mercy will triumph over judgment.
GSNT JAM 2:14 My brothers, what is the good of a man's saying he has faith, if he has no good deeds to show? Can faith save him?
GSNT JAM 2:15 If some brother or sister has no clothes and has not food enough for a day,
GSNT JAM 2:16 and one of you says to them, "Goodbye, keep warm and have plenty to eat," without giving them the necessaries of life, what good does it do?
GSNT JAM 2:17 So faith by itself, if it has no good deeds to show, is dead.
GSNT JAM 2:18 But someone may say, "You have faith, and I good deeds." Show me your faith without any good deeds, and I will show you my faith by my good deeds.
GSNT JAM 2:19 Do you believe in one God? Very well! So do the demons, and they shudder.
GSNT JAM 2:20 But do you want proof, my senseless friend, that faith without good deeds amounts to nothing?
GSNT JAM 2:21 Was not our forefather Abraham made upright for his good deeds, for offering his son Isaac on the altar?
GSNT JAM 2:22 You see that in his case faith and good deeds worked together; faith found its highest expression in good deeds,
GSNT JAM 2:23 and so the Scripture came true that says, "Abraham had faith in God, and it was credited to him as uprightness, and he was called God's friend."
GSNT JAM 2:24 You see a man is made upright by his good deeds and not simply by having faith.
GSNT JAM 2:25 Was not even Rahab the prostitute made upright for her good deeds, in entertaining the scouts and sending them off by a different road?
GSNT JAM 2:26 Just as the body without the spirit is dead, faith is dead without good deeds.
