James:2:14-26 What use is it, my brothers, for a man to say that he has faith, if he does nothing? will such a faith give him salvation?  If a brother or a sister is without clothing and in need of the day's food,  And one of you says to them, Go in peace, be warm and full of food; but you do not give them the things of which their bodies have need, what profit is there in this?  Even so faith without works is dead.  But a man may say, You have faith and I have works; let me see your faith without your works, and I will make my faith clear to you by my works.  You have the belief that God is one, and you do well: the evil spirits have the same belief, shaking with fear.  Do you not see, O foolish man, that faith without works is of no use?  Was not the righteousness of Abraham our father judged by his works, when he made an offering of Isaac his son on the altar?  You see that his faith was helping his works and was made complete by them;  And the holy Writings were put into effect which said, And Abraham had faith in God and it was put to his account as righteousness; and he was named the friend of God.  You see that a man's righteousness is judged by his works and not by his faith only.  And in the same way, was not the righteousness of Rahab, the loose woman, judged by her works, when she took into her house those who were sent and let them go out by another way?  For as the body without the spirit is dead even so faith without works is dead.
