Main point summary
If a person only talks about his spirituality, he is useless. True spirituality is found in helpful works and godliness.
If anyone thinks himself to be religious,
If do you consider yourself God-fearing
and yet does not 1 a bridle his tongue
and do not hold in check your speaking
but deceives his own heart,
then you are fooling yourself
this man’s religion is worthless.
because you show your fear of God is empty, powerless, useless
Pure and undefiled religion a in the sight of our God and Father is this:
God sees pure devotion to Him in actions like
to b visit c orphans and widows in their distress,
visiting orphans and widows
and to keep oneself unstained 1 by d the world.
and not being conformed to the world.
Religion that is only words and debate is worthless.
True Godly religion manifests itself in helpful actions and Godly morality.
