Mary Jo Sharp explains that there are two assumptions people make when they say that they don’t need any evidence for their faith. The first assumption is that faith doesn’t involve reasoning, despite the words of Peter and the actions of Paul and Jesus. The second assumption is that our faith will never be shaken, when in Scripture and in our own lives faith-shaking experiences are quite common.

3:10 – This reference to Isaiah is mistaken. The reference should be to Elijah and his interactions with the prophets of Baal.

    Catholics love to misquote James. James was merely addressing Practical Christian Living for Jews who were already saved!

    FAITH ALONE is a doctrine that says "one is not saved by works, but by faith in Jesus". It is a summary of Eph 2:8-9. It is absolutely 200% biblical!
    BIBLE SAYS CHRISTIANS ARE SAVED NOT BY WORKS, BUT BY FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST
    ( Only unbelievers and Jews under Mosaic Law are judged by works for salvation. Romans 2, Rev 20:13. Christians are saved by grace through faith, NOT BY WORKS. Eph 2:8-9. )
