    Protestant denominations, particularly those who we call fundamentalists in the US.  Catholics place a greater emphasis on James which is considered the earliest written of the gospels and perhaps closer to a first hand account.  Paul was written later.  

    The main difference is the idea in James that faith without deeds is meaningless.  You have to walk it, not just talk it.  Those who emphasize Paul believe that we are saved by faith alone.  Deeds don't matter.
