Comments for James 2:18

Anthony's comment on 2012-06-02 02:32:47:

Jeff, and Alexander, and to the rest of the comments and lovly scriptures that were written! And u all were right! Ur quoting the BIBLE. But don't forget, to eat the WHOLE book! Hide the word n thy heart so u might not sin against Him. U all left out Acts. Where the bible states n 2:40 or so it states to SAVE URSELF from this untoward generation. God is a gentleman and He will not force Himself on u. But u must b Born Again. John 3:5 U must b born of the Water and Of the Spirit, and if not ur not going to heaven. Now That's Bible Too.
