What do James and Paul, Martin Luther and contemporary society all have in common? All are part of a controversy, a problem, over faith. Faith is a key doctrine in the Christian life. But notice what Paul and James say about it:
Paul: "For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law." (Romans 3:28)
James: "You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone." (James 2:24)
How do we reconcile these two statements in God's inspired Word?
Scripture: James 2:14-28
