Faith And Works

17 So also faith, if it is unaccompanied by obedience, has no life in it--so long as it stands alone. 18 Nay, some one will say, "You have faith, I have actions: prove to me your faith apart from corresponding actions and I will prove mine to you by my actions. 19 You believe that God is one, and you are quite right: evil spirits also believe this, and shudder."
