    Clean1, the reference is James 2:16

    Kirkwood...you must look at the surrounding text. This passage is discussing faith without works. In verse 15 it says if a brother or sister comes to you and is without food or clothing you cannot simply say go on your way and be filled and warmed. You have to actually do something (works) to help them.

    In my study Bible it explains for James, justification is by a faith that works -- by a genuine faith that manifests itself in post-conversion works.

    Howdy, Kirkwood!!

    Warm and filled in this context means staying physically warm and having eaten something.

    James is explaining why faith without works is dead.

    James 2:14-17

    He says that suppose you come upon a person who has no adequate clothes nor food. Then he says that if all you do is to yell at him, "Hey, fella!! God bless! Stay warm....eat good!", and don't provide him with some warm clothes and food, then you are spiritually worthless.
