>>The other is salvific religion.<<
I would disagree. The verse in James says nothing about salvation. It simply says that God accepts that kind of religion. Thinking that doing those somehow obtains or deserves salvation is contrary to what scripture teaches.

God accepting would be a good thing, right?
Like the rest of James, it is talking about how people who are saved act. Not encouraging works righteousness.
