The epistle of James is contained in a section of the Holy Bible known as the General
Epistles. Other books included in the General Epistles are 1 and 2 Peter, Jude, and 1, 2, 3 John.
In the New Testament, few books have been accorded much criticism and attention as the book
of James. This has been attributed to its strong support for staying within the laws of the Lord. In
the original preface to the New Testament, Martin Luther questioned James position in the canon
of the New Testament. Martin wrote that "I, therefore, refuse him [James] a place among the
writers of the true canon of my Bible; but I would not prevent anyone else placing him or raising
him where he likes." He went further to describe it as "an epistle of straw" compared to
Ephesians, Romans, and Galatians. It is possible to question why there is a very strong bias
against James in Today's church when in the real sense, the early church did not question James's
value (Erdman, 2013).

Later on, we come to the realization that this is because mainstream churches reject the
ideology that God needs us to stay in line with the law today. Some argue that such requirements
suggest that Christians are trying to get salvation, or that the law of Jesus Christ is not being
enforced. Nevertheless, James clarifies that the epistle was all about keeping God's law, which is
