|James 1: 17 - 18, 21 - 22, 27
||Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
||Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.
||Therefore put away all filthiness and rank growth of wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
||But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
||Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
