“Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.”
When we understand who God is and what Jesus did for us we can understand what this verse means. Taking care of the ones that need it most, and not letting the world corrupt us.
Changing marriage to fit the worlds pleasure is corruption. Pushing that there are more than two genders and telling kids God made a mistake in how He made you is corruption. Trying to make abortion a medical condition is corruption. James finishes with telling us we must refuse this worldly nonsense and work on being like Jesus who would have loved them by talking with them about truth and the behavior they needed to stop doing.
Love is not acceptance it’s caring enough to share the behaviors that will hurt them. Sin separates us from God, Jesus came to show us what sin is and that it leads to death. Then He died and rose again to cover our sin so we know the perfect and only way to the Father. Thank you Jesus! Don’t let the world corrupt you, take care of orphans and widows. Amen
