    Isidore E. Sharpe Professor John Walker NTS 301 30 September 2016 Final Exam The Epistle of James has impact my life spiritually. James influenced my walk with Christ. I am able to help other Christians on how to endure and trust God in the midst of adversity. James recognized that the church of today is facing some of the same issues that the early church faced. I learned that the church today is combated with pride, discrimination, greed, lust, hypocrisy, worldliness, and backbiting. James believed that "Faith without works is dead" (James 2:26), and that our mere profession of faith is not enough. We have to walk by faith and not by sight. I am with the teaching of James and his desires, Christians cannot only hear the truth, but also…

    Doctrine Of Justification

    • 2608 Words
    • 11 Pages

    Matt Slick in an article on Christian Apologetics & Research Ministry indicates that many Catholics point to James 2:24 which says “You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone” to refute Luther’s understanding of the doctrine. Slick points out that what James is talking about is having dead faith instead of having a saving faith. He states that “mere intellectual acknowledgement of Christ is a dead faith that produces no regeneration and no change in a person 's life.…

    What will tomorrow hold? In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus said, “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own…

    Alanna Allen 10/2/15 Period 1 1 Thess. Background 1 Thessalonians is written by the apostle Paul. No one really argues about his authorship due to him referring to himself throughout his letter. Some critics attempt to state that Paul is indeed not the author but failed (BKC.1 Thess p.690). He often used three first person plural pronouns when referring to himself or Silas and Timothy (MSB 1 Thess p.1841). Paul and Silas first went to preach in Berea but once the…

    2 Timothy The book of 2 Timothy is the second of two pastoral letters or epistles sent to Timothy by Paul while he was a prisoner in Rome. It was written sometime before Paul’s death in AD 66 (Hindson & Towns, 2013, p. 500) and probably written around four years after he wrote 1 Timothy and told Timothy to “fight the good fight” (1 Tim 1:18). The dominant theme of 2 Timothy is the church's departure from the truth (Hindson & Towns, 2013, p. 498) however, the letter is broken down further into…

    The majority of this year was spent on improving our writing for the first three targets, though the fourth is still relevant and important in crafting polished essay. As the year progressed, I began to see myself more easily spotting errors of syntax, spelling, and other cosmetic details. To demonstrate my ability to revise based on the feedback of others and my own opinions, I chose to revisit my Insider/Outsider Biography, paper 1.1. Coming back to this piece after several months, I…
