|My brothers, what benefit is there if someone claims to have faith, but he does not have works? How would faith be able to save him?
|So if a brother or sister is naked and daily in need of food,
|and if anyone of you were to say to them: “Go in peace, keep warm and nourished,” and yet not give them the things that are necessary for the body, of what benefit is this?
|Thus even faith, if it does not have works, is dead, in and of itself.
|Now someone may say: “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without works! But I will show you my faith by means of works.
