The True Test

Feeling religious today?  The true test for a religious person is found in the book of James.

Writing to the 12 tribes, James, a servant of God and of Jesus Christ, said:

If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.        

Religion that God, our Father, accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

                  James 1: 26, 27

How do you keep the world from polluting your thoughts?  Jesus tells us, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they will follow me.” (John 10:27)
