      James 2:14   
What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

Be sure to read the rest. pretty straight forward.

24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
