Paul Taylor claims his WORKS as assurance of salvation.
The apostle Paul had this to say about having confidence in the flesh....
 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.
 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:
 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;
 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
I also noticed that Mr. Taylor was not using the King James Bible.
Pastor Steven Anderson said last year that Eric Hovind and Paul Taylor had gone into works salvation, sadly it looks like he was right.
The book of James is written prophetically to Israel in the last days (Daniel's 70th Week). It is not written about Gentiles in the Dispensation of Grace.
"James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting." (James 1:1)
 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
 Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.
 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.
James is writing prophetically to Israel in the last days when the Second Coming of Christ is at hand. They have to endure to the end to be saved because they are under the Gospel of the Kingdom and God's wrath (Matt. 24:13-14, Luke 21:19-23). They are not under the Dispensation of Grace.
The Second Coming of Christ is not at hand today (but the rapture is). We are living in a "mystery" age that is not about Israel or the prophetic Jewish Kingdom that will be established after Daniel's 70th Week.
 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
