To prepare people to live successfully on earth as they await the second coming of Christ.
James 2:14-18; What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, and anyone of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body;what doth it profit?
Even so faith, if it hath not works,is dead, being alone. yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
James 5:16; Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
1 John 4:7-11; Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that Love is born of God, and knoweth God.
He that Love not knoweth not knoweth not God; For God is love.
