181 - Salvation According to James

July 30, 2012
James takes great care in setting out tests of true salvation that cut to the heart of casual, lukewarm, so-called Christianity.  Then, halfway through his letter, James presents the Gospel without compromise.  And it is a sobering presentation compared to what is preached from most pulpits today.

Consider the following:

Therefore submit to God.  Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.  Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.  Lament and mourn and weep!  

Do you know the implications of what James is saying?  If not, then you'd better keep listening.

The following is a study on James 4:7-10.
