Not A “Just Believe” Faith

The Book of Yahweh – the most accurate translation of the Bible available today – proves that man’s doctrine of “only believe” is false. Bible passage, side notes taken from The Book of Yahweh, The Holy Scriptures page 954 – 955, a House of Yahweh publication…

Faith Without The Work of Keeping The Law Is Dead, Being Alone

Yaaqob [James] 2:14-26
14 What does it profit, my brothers, if a man says he has faith, but does not have works? The faith is not able to save him.
15 If a brother or sister is naked, and destitute of daily food,
16 And one of you says to them: Depart in peace, be warmed and filled; but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body; what does it profit?
17 In the same way, the faith, if it does not have works, is dead, being alone.
18 Yes, a man may say: You have faith, and I have works. Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works!
19 You believe that there is one Father? You do well; the demons (elohim) also believe, and tremble.
20 But are you willing to know, O vain man, that the faith without works is dead?
21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
22 Do you see that the faith worked together with his works, and by works the faith makes perfect?
23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says: Abraham was faithful in all The House of Yahweh, and it was accounted to him for righteousness; and he was called the friend of Yahweh.
24 You see then that a man is also justified by works, and not by the faith alone.
25 In the same way also, was not Rachab the harlot justified by works, when she had welcomed the messengers, and sent them out another way?
26 For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so the faith without works is dead also.
