  • Living Faith / Dead Faith

    Contributed by Eddie Snipes on Sep 23, 2007
    based on 5 ratings
     | 11,556 views

    The Bible speaks of a faith that is dead and living faith that empowers the Christian life. This study examines the scriptures that teach about faith and explain how that faith is not the product of man’s efforts, but the gift of God.

    Living Faith / Dead Faith Over the last several months I have been praying for God to reveal more about faith to me. As I study the scriptures, I realized that there is much I have yet to understand. This study is the result of a lot of seeking and praying. While I believe that God has answered ...read more

  • A Funeral For A Dead Faith

    Contributed by Adrian Rogers on Jan 4, 2012
    based on 14 ratings
     | 23,971 views

    No corpse can work his way into life. He just can’t do it. He is dead. He has got to receive the life before he works.

    The Christian life is just summed up in Grace but the devil doesn’t want you to know that. The devil doesn’t want you to believe that. What the devil wants to do is to try to mix together grace and works. And when we try to mix together grace and works, then grace is not grace at all. ...read more

    Would you turn to James, chapter 2. Now when we look in the Book of James we find a lot of straight talk. James does not beat around the bush. But he says something in the passage that we’re about to study, something very startling, because it almost seems, and a careless reading would make ...read more

  • An Endangered Species

     | 2,453 views

    It is futile to have faith without deeds. In simple language, it is hypocrisy and such a faith can never save anybody. One’s faith is dead if it is not accompanied by action.

    An Endangered Species What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his ...read more

    James 2 and Romans 4 have some interesting contrasts. Faith without works is dead or faith apart from works is what saves... which is true?

    Last week James told us that if we are careless with our language our religion is worthless. (Jas. 1:26) This week James tells us that if we believe without acting on it our faith is worthless. (Jas. 2:14,17,20,26). A worthless religion and a worthless faith make a worthless Christian and a ...read more

    This is about living faith.

    How do you check to see if someone is alive? You check for vital signs. You check their pulse. You find out if the person is breathing. You may check for blood pressure. You might ask if the person can move their fingers or toes. You may even holler out the person’s name. There are several ...read more
