Do not sin, pursue purity.
James 1:26-27 NET
26 If someone thinks he is religious yet does not bridle his tongue, and so deceives his heart, his religion is futile. 27 Pure and undefiled religion before 31 God the Father 32 is this: to care for orphans and widows in their misfortune and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
If anyone thinks he is religious
If he even think he is religious
q and does not bridle his tongue
by not controlling his tongue
but deceives his heart,
Yet He Is deceiving his heart
this person’s r religion is worthless.
Then this persons religion is worthless
Religion that is pure
But a religion that is pure
and undefiled before God, the Father, is this:
That is undefiled before God, the Father, is this:
s to visit t orphans and widows in their affliction,
To take care of orphans and widows in their sufferings
and u to keep oneself v unstained from the world.
And also to to guard oneself morally pure from the world
As a Christian we should long for purity and righteousness by showing mercy and kindness to the people who are suffering and experiencing cruelty here on earth.
