I believe in the deity of Christ by the way, I'm just trying to think of this from a defensive JW's point of view.
Mt 6:24James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
They were taking James' statement and using it to show that, in light of Jesus' statement in Mt 6, James couldn't have had the view that Jesus was not God, or else he would be violating the sermon on the mount. Thoughts?“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
