  2. 2. Doyouknowthisman?
  3. 3. 14 Brothers, what value is there insomeone claiming to have faith with noassociated deeds? Can this kind of faithsave anyone? 15 If a brother or a sisterneeds proper clothing or has nothing to eatand 16 one of your number simply says “Goin peace and be warmed and filled”

  8. 8. 20 If you still foolishly think like this I willshow you that faith without accompanyingdeeds has no reality. 21 Wasn’t Abrahamour father justified by his deeds throughthe offering of his son on the altar? 22 Hisfaith was made visible through his actions.By such faith he was made whole.
  9. 9. 23 The Scripture was fulfilled thatsaid, “Abraham believed God and itwas accounted to him asrighteousness.” He was called God’sfriend. 24 So you can see that a manis justified by his deeds of faith, notjust by empty faith-words.
