Echoing Words More Like an Old Testament Prophet than a New Testament Apostle

From the same Apostle who admonishes “faith without works is dead,” James in his letter tells us to guard against preferential treatment of the rich at the expense of the poor. But he also gives us this sound bite, echoing words more like a prophet than an Apostle …

“Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you.” James 5:1-6
