The Book of James: An "Epistle of Straw"? | United Church of God
James 2 starts with instructions about being impartial toward people. James instructs not to show favoritism toward individuals who are wealthy because God has chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith. He cites examples from Abraham and Rabah, showing that what they did, proved their faith. James 3 gives instruction about the dangers of the words we say. The tongue has the ability to set the course of life, James compares it to a rudder which steers a ship and a fire which can consume everything in its path.
He makes the contrast that out of the same mouth come praise and curses, however this should not be because true faith is evident by our words.
