|Overview - James 2|
|1||It is not agreeable to Christian profession to regard the rich, and to despise the poor brethren;|
|13||rather we are to be loving and merciful;|
|14||and not to boast of faith where no deeds are;|
|17||which is but a dead faith;|
|19||the faith of the devils;|
|21||not of Abraham;|
James 2:10 (King James Version)
For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
- While the Jews taught that "he who transgresses all the precepts of the law has broken the yoke, dissolved the covenant, and exposed the law to contempt; and so has he done who has only broken one precept;" they also taught, "that he who observed any principal command was equal to him who kept the whole law," and gave for an example the forsaking of idolatry. To correct this false doctrine was the object James had in view.
