Like the proverbial man from Missouri, James continued to say, “Prove it to me! If you believe like you should, why do you behave like you shouldn’t?” Throughout the entire first chapter, James punctured the bubble of theoretical faith with the sharp needle of realistic examples. He declared, in effect, that real faith, when stretched by tests of temptations, doesn’t break—it is stable. This is true when we are not merely “hearers” but effective “doers” of the truth we claim to believe. In chapter 2, James dug even deeper. His initial desire was to show that real faith, when faced with different types of people, won’t misjudge or succumb to partiality or prejudice. Why? Because real faith operates on the basis of genuine love.
