The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJames 1:16
Do not err, my beloved brethren.
] For to make God the
author of sin, or to charge him with being concerned in temptation
to sin, is a very great error, a fundamental one, which strikes at
the nature and being of God, and at the perfection of his holiness:
it is a denying of him, and is one of those damnable errors and
heresies, which bring upon men swift destruction; and therefore to
be guarded against, rejected, and abhorred by all that profess any
regard unto him, his name and glory.
