James_Faith that Works: True Religion

53 views

Published on

This sermon covers James 1:19-27. Religion is not a significant part of the evangelical vocabulary. We are quick to state that Christianity is not a religion, it is a relationship. However, in his epistle, James uses the term religion in the positive context of true and pure religion. The hallmark of such a religion is that it is the special combination of intently hearing the word of God and enthusiastically doing what the word says! It's that point where we practice what we preach, caring for the most vulnerable of people in gentleness and genuine Christian love.
