Lesson 10: Taming the Tongue
James has a lot to say about how we use our words. He says with our words we can praise God or curse people made in God's image. We can build up or tear down through the use of our tongues. James teaches us that while the tongue is small it can bring on great devastation. How do you use your words? Join David and me as we take a look at James 3:1-12 and discuss how we can grow in grace when it comes to our words.
Lesson 9: Faith and Works
This is Lesson 9 in our series on the Book of James, "Living Wisely in Turbulent Times." In this video David and I discuss James 2:14-26. This is a text that has often been misunderstood through the years and so David and I do our best to clarify what James did and did not mean when he wrote in verse 24, "You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone." Join us as we dig into God's Word.
