Contrasted with Pauline doctrine and cited in the arguments of Roman Catholics, Mormons, and other groups against justification by faith alone, James 2:14-26 has faced difficulty being received on its own merits. Nevertheless, it contains essential Christian theology on the nature and expression of faith. It challenges those who understand belief to be a mere acknowledgement or assent of certain truths, and it presents a sobering call to the life of faith that James describes, with all of its ethical and communal implications.
