While faith without works is most certainly a dead faith, works without faith is just as dead. They are both equally unresponsive to God.

I think the book of james said it all..So I am trying to figure out if you are trying to say something different from the book
 Quoting: Neim-Ya'shar


I am trying to point out what "dead" means scripturally. Eph 2 is a good place to start. A "dead faith" (per James) is not expressed in some way ("works") and therefore the person with that "dead faith" is unresponsive to God.

But "works with out faith" is equally dead because it is equally unresponsive to God. There are lots of people who "do" greater things than I do. They are more charitable, more loving, more moral, more law-keeping... But if these people blow off God, they are still "dead" (spiritually dead - unresponsive to God) regardless of the great works that they do.
