Belief = behavior. According to James 3, it makes sense that faith without works is dead. Works is part of the definition of faith. Without works, faith IS dead – you can’t even define faith. The people in James 3 said they believed, but they did not act in accordance with it – and therefore they did not have faith at all. “When the Son of Man cometh, shall he find faith on earth?”
