Jim Class: Faith & Works

On Sunday we discussed a section in James 2 that is sometimes the subject of controversy: faith vs. works. While James makes it clear in this section that faith without works is useless, this seems to go against the clear teaching of Paul that we are saved by God’s grace through faith… not by works. What’s going on? In today’s message we took a deep dive into the context of the relevant passages and discovered that James and Paul had very different audiences who were at different levels in their spiritual maturity. Both disciples’ messages are actually very similar and complementary: we are not saved BY good works, but we are saved FOR good works.
