James (pt 5) - What is Real Faith?

Real faith is not just something you say, something you feel, something you think, or something you believe - real faith is something you do!

James 2:17- faith without works is dead! People throughout Christian history have taken sides...grace vs works. Many different views exist. Once saved always saved, you can backslide out of your salvation, it’s already chosen for you, you have to do miracles, miracles have ceased...so many different views based on different scripture passages. The ‘contradiction ‘ between Paul’s saved by grace, and James’ faith and works... is 2 different perspectives on the same thing.

Pastor Mike breaks down how these different descriptions are two sides of the same coin, and what real faith looks like. The focus is on James 2, but also referenced are:

Ephesians 2:8
Matthew 7:20-23
1 John 3:17
2 Corinthians 13:5
