I personally believe that in order to be a good person, you have to act like a good person. I don't believe that one should just expect that the so
called doctrine of grace to save them. It's not really scripture. Let's look at what scripture actually says about faith. Is faith enough?
Take the case, my brothers, of someone who has never done a single good act but claims that he has faith. Will that faith save him? If one of the
brothers or one of the sisters is in need of clothes and has not enough food to live on, and one of you says to them, " I wish you well; keep
yourself warm and eat plenty", without giving them these bare necessities of life, then what good is that? Faith is like that: if good works do not
go with it, it is dead by itself.
This is important. I believe it shows the early split in the church from the church of Jerusalem and the teachings of Jesus and the teachings of the
infiltrator /Paul. It's apparent that early on, Paul was deceiving the Gentile (non-Jewish) followers of what they thought was the teachings of
Christ. They were in fact, the teachings of Paul, who never met Jesus and simply lied in order to deceive both the real 12 Apostles and the Gentiles.
But the Apostles would not tolerate such false teachings as the doctrine of grace, and this passage in James is evidence that Paul was deceiving the
ancient world into accepting a more Roman acceptable version . He declares the Law dead, Jesus disagrees. He says to follow him. Jesus says don't.
He says he is an Apostle. The New Testament doesn't record anyone other than Luke, Paul's sidekick, and Paul himself, as referring to him as
Apostle. This includes the book of Revelation and the last words spoken by Jesus.
Paul is a lying blasphemer who would have you believe that he met Jesus after the Ascension. He did not. He was NOT accepted by the Apostles once
they found out what he is teaching and it's at this point where the story seems to want to make him the hero for "rebuking" Peter the Apostle. But
the story doesn't even record Peter's response to Paul and his alleged rebuke in Acts. I wonder if Luke didn't just write down whatever Paul said.
Probably. Paul actually had a lot to answer for and the story seems deliberately cut off at the point where Peter would reply to Paul's spurious
Grace is a scam.
