Jenny, welcome to the Forum. And thank you for your very thoughtful reflections. You have brought up some very fundamental questions and I think that as you progress with the course and know more of James thinking, you will see as you commented yourself, that Christianity “seems concerned with behaviour”. Yes, that is James teaching, Christianity is essentially relational. Or as the great French thinker Simone Weil wrote “the Gospels are more an anthropology than a theology”.
