If you have any doubts when you ask God for more wisdom you won't receive anything because you are not fully attentive to God.

You shouldn't be tempted by God, because desire leads to sin. But doesn't converting to a religion that promises an eternal reward mean you must have been tempted by God, or at least by the message being spread in his name.

James defines pure and undefiled Christianity as caring for orphans and widows and keeping yourself unstained by the world. So, become a monk or nun then?

James' example of law breaking went a bit far, he says that breaking a single law makes you guilty of breaking all of them. So his example is that if you do not commit adultery but do commit murder then you have violated the law, yes sounds like a violation of the law of pretty much every human society.

I think we were being told a few days ago that faith is most important, but James says that it's no good claiming to have faith if you don't physically help those in need. Sounds fair enough to me.

The tongue is the most powerful and dangerous part of the human body.

You shouldn't speak against fellow believers because that is speaking against the law. I guess it depends what you mean by speak against, if they were breaking some of those laws shouldn't you tell someone?

You shouldn't make plans without adding 'if God is willing' because it is arrogant to think you know what will happen. I must agree that 'you are a puff of smoke that appears for a short time and then vanishes'.

The Lord's return was near according to James, the believers just had to be patient for a bit.

Praying will make sick people well & bringing a sinner back to the truth saves the soul of the person doing the bringing.
