James 2:26 throws out the doctrine of Dichotomy! For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. KJV The body is born with a soul and is alive physically, but dead spiritually. You notice it didn 't mentioned the soul, it is too obvious! Spirit doesn 't dwell in dead bodies. They have to be alive and active to do good or evil. Then satan and demons would be eradicated if that we 're so. I therefore am persuaded of the Trichotomy doctrine.

When a person is dead, there is no animating force, or "spirit", in him, and he accomplishes nothing. Mere professed faith is just lifeless and useless as a dead body. If we have real faith, though, it will move us to godly action.
