Of course you are right, Steve -- May I retract my question at least in
part -- my intent was not to start a big controversy about theology --
perhaps I could rework my question to be more suitable --

Ok then, simply what I would like to know is this: -- what is with the [;]
in this passage? It is not in my UBS GNT -- however, my NASB translates
this as a question. Is it a question James asking, or a statement?

Again, my sincere apologies if I have unnecessarily offended anybody with my
previous question.
