Pristine Grace

Jas 2:17, (GILL), Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. It is like a lifeless carcass, a body without a soul, Jas 2:26 for as works, without faith, are dead works, so faith, without works, is a dead faith, and not like the lively hope and faith of regenerated persons: and indeed, such who have no other faith than this are dead in trespasses and sins; not that works are the life of faith, or that the life of faith lies in, and flows from works; but, as Dr. Ames observes [b], good works are second acts, necessarily flowing from the life of faith; to which may be added, and by these faith appears to be living, lively and active, or such who perform them appear to be true and living believers.

[b] Medulla Theolog. l. 2. c. 7. sect. 35.
