NT
James 1:26-27
net
mine
If someone thinks he is religious
If one presumes religiosity
yet does not bridle his tongue,
while detracting others through censure, verbal abuse, gossip, or slander,
concessive
and so deceives his heart,
he thus deceives himself,
his religion is futile.
because his religion is vain.
bilateral
Pure and undefiled religion before 31 God the Father 32 is this:
Genuine religion to God means
to care for orphans and widows in their misfortune
helping neglected or oppressed people
and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
while maintaining a godly testimony among those deplorables being cared for.
