True Faith Should Result in Good Works

No Favouritism

The Church is expected to be a standard for the society to follow. It must have a positive influence on the society such that the whole society will soon become pure and righteous. Standards of judgement in the Church are not the same as those in the society. People ought not to be given important places in the church merely because they have important places in the society. Likewise poor people should not be ignored (verse 1-4).

Otherwise, he would have said which James he was since there were many people named James at the time. Of all the persons with the name of James, two were leaders in the church.
