Unlike other epistles, James is not so much concerned with doctrine but living out doctrine. Over half the words in this epistle are commands. James believed that true faith produces the corresponding works, and if it does not, it is not true faith (Jam 2:14-26). Even the demons believe in God but are not saved (2:15, 19). True faith not only hears God’s Word, but obeys it (1:22)…
James wanted the scattered and persecuted Jewish believers he wrote to develop a faith that works. Let’s study this epistle together with The Bible Teacher’s Guide. “The Bible Teacher’s Guide … will help any teacher study and get a better background for his/her Bible lessons. In addition, it will give direction and scope to teaching of the Word of God. Praise God for this contemporary introduction to the Word of God.” – Dr. Elmer Towns, Co-founder of Liberty University

One story takes us deep into the dark web where a game turns out to actually be an avenue for selling armaments. Another is about a drug ring where some of the local police are involved. And there is another that is more war oriented, taking place in Iraq. There is even a story for the lover of all things Amish.” by Amazon Customer
