||In the Old Testament days, and probably still today, some claimed to have the "gift" of faith, but not the "gift" of works. They would say something like, "It's fine for you to have your gift of works and it's nice that you help take care of the needy. But that isn't my gift (or my calling)."
James would not tolerate this type of thinking. How did he answer this in James 2:18?
