James Written To Men Only
The Book of James is written to Jews and men only. The Holy Spirit does not speak exclusively to Jews; nor to men only. This letter is racist and sexist. God is not racist or sexist. The Holy Spirit did not write this letter; nor did the real James. This letter is unholy.
James 1:1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
Can we truly say, “The Holy Spirit does not speak to all saints equally.”? If we cannot say that, we cannot canonize the James letter as if the Holy Spirit wrote it. This letter does not speak to all saints equally!
We should not read letters that are not addressed to us. That’s prying into matters that are none of our business. We are trespassing the intent of the author.
I am going to focus more on the fact that James is written to men only. Because in this specific group of Jews to whom James does write – women are present. So people within this people group, women, were excluded as if they were not saved. James did not treat women in this people group as fellow human beings and fellow members of the family of God.
James is writing about a religion for men only. He treated women as if they don’t exist. So, women don’t exist as persons in this religion. That’s a false religion.
False Religion & Heresy
This false religion has nothing to do with the true Jesus Christ. Women don’t exist as persons in this religion.
There’s no equal salvation for women. This religion doesn’t include women in an equal plan of salvation with men. This religion preaches a false plan of salvation!
This is the same heresy of “Paul”.
“Paul” declares men “heads” “saved by grace”. He says men are the saviors of their bodies: and women are men’s bodies. Men save women because women aren’t persons; but just bodies men own as their own property.
Women aren’t regarded as “worthy” to be addressed as persons addressed by this impostor “James”, either. So then, this gnostic author agrees with “Paul”.
Both “Paul” and the impostor “James” regard women as bodily appendages of men: things, objects, and chattel as property owned by men. Slaves. Not equal adult persons.
The author speaks in the same pattern all below in all the rest of the chaptersof “James”: speaking only to men and excluding women.
This is not the gospel of Jesus Christ! This is a false gospel!
This “James”, along with “Paul”, preaches a false gospel of salvation “for men only”. He turns the church of Jesus Christ into a worldly “man’s club”: a “man’s world” in which women are slaves and things!
Whatever this religion is ~ it is not the gospel of free and equal salvation to all who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ to be equally born again!
James 1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye [men] may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. 5 If any of you [men] lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. 9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted: 10 but the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them [the men] that love him. 13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 but every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
16 Do not err, my beloved brethren. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. 18 Of his own will begat he us [men not women] with the word of truth, that we [men not women]should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20 for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls [men not women]. 22 But be ye [men] doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves [men].
23 For if any [man] be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 for he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso [men] looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
James Grossly Disrespects Christian Women
This letter viewed, regarded, and treated me as a woman as a non-entity, a non-person, a persona non gratis. So, the author views and treats women as objects, things, and the personal property of men as slaves.
The author of this letter grossly disrespected me and all women.
Every person who receives this letter as “scripture” is grossly disrespecting me and all women! Agreeing with the author to treat, view, and regard me and all women as objects, things, and the personal property of men as slaves!
Regarding women as unequal with men as persons! Not equally saved by saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ!
No person who can treat a woman like this is the friend of women. So then they cant be the friend of Jesus, either, in doing that. What persons do to us as women believers in Jesus ~ they have done to Jesus Christ!
Truly, it was my pleasure to remove this letter from my Bible, spit on it, and throw it in the trash. It was a letter I, as a woman, was never intended to read for myself. The “Book of James” was never “mine”.
The problem of addressing the letter exclusively to Jews and to men only is now more clear. The author did not intend for Gentiles or women to read this letter. The author did not address this letter, write this letter, nor send this letter to Gentiles or women.
The Holy Spirit Did Not Write James. The Real James Did Not Write This Book
The real Bible is addressed to no narrow group of people excluding other New Testament saints. God has written the real Bible for all saints to read.
We cannot include this forged letter of a false gnostic impersonating James. The author did not address this letter to all saints equally. The author of the Book of James did not write the letter intending for all New Testament saints to read it.
Therefore, God is not the author of the Book of James; nor did the real James write it.
