Faith and Works
May 8, 2015 • James 2:14-26
The Christians James was addressing in his letter seem to have forgotten what real faith was. Maybe they never really knew. They tried to practice a counterfeit faith and they ended up being counterfeit Christians. That’s why James attacks the issue of faith so hard in the most famous - or maybe infamous - passage in his letter. He is trying to get his readers to see that the faith they’re so proud of is a sham, and he wants to help them understand instead what real faith is like and how works and good deeds correctly relate to faith. Today on Groundwork we study James’ description of real faith together and discuss how it applies to us.
