  • Talk Is Cheap

    Contributed by Gordon Pike on Mar 6, 2019
     | 5,126 views

    Actions or works may not create faith but they can reveal the substance and form of a person’s faith. To me, works is our faith made visible. “For just as a body without the spirit is dead” … a corpse … “so faith without works is also dead” … a corpse (James 2:26).

    [Put up picture of me on screen.] Let me tell you a little bit about that man in the photo. He was 40 years old when that picture was taken. He was 20 months sober at the time. Well … “sober” is not the right word. He was a dry drunk” … which means that he hadn’t picked up a drink in 20 ...read more

     | 4,473 views

    Hopefully this sermon will explain that faith moves us to do good works. It also shows that it is our actions that count not just things we say and we should evaluate our spiritual lives regularly

    When I worked for the City around this time of year we started working on our budgets. We would evaluate all of our training programs and try and increase spending in the programs that worked and phase out those that didn’t or weren’t absolutely necessary. Businesses do it all the ...read more

    In James 2, we see one of the most challenging passages of Scripture. However, when seen in context, James' point becomes clear and understood.

    The English language can be a very challenging language to learn. Part of that is because many ordinary words that we use in everyday conversation can have many different meanings. Take the word “run,” for example, which according to dictionary.com, has over 179 different meanings for the word. ...read more

     | 6,200 views

    The church needs to put faith in action by ruthlessly rooting out the disease of pride and prejudice, favoritism in its body. Why? Because it is infecting others and causing death not life. This chapter is clear separate faith and works and you get a dead corpse.

    Something is missing from the church today, and people are starting to notice. Too often the church fails to offer what it advertises: life.
