What does James 2:12 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
James 2:12

So speak ye, and so do
Both words and actions should be taken care of; it becomes men to observe what they say, and what they do; for both sinful words and works are transgressions of the law, and will be brought to judgment; every idle word, as well as every evil work, both open and secret, men must give an account of in the day of judgment: wherefore it is incumbent on them so to behave,

as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty:
(See Gill on James 1:25) with which compare ( Romans 2:12 Romans 2:16 ) . Heathens will be judged by the law of nature, Jews by the law of Moses, and those who live under the Gospel dispensation, according to the Gospel of Christ.
