|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
14 Dear friends, do you think you'll get anywhere in this if you learn all the right words but never do anything? Does merely talking about faith indicate that a person really has it?
14 What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him?
