(8a) According to James,believers should be the doers of the word and not hearers only. For if they are more hearers, they are like a man who observes his face in a mirror but soon as he goes away he forgets what his face looks like.
He who has heard the perfect law and preserves in its by his actions,shall be blessed in his doing. For somebody to be truly religious, he must bridle his tongue,else his religion is in vain,he is decieving himself.
