  • The Epistle Of James Research Paper

    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.

    Jude is known as the brother of James and the half brother of Jesus. It is said that Jude was written in 65 AD.

  • The Pros And Cons Of The Roman Road

    There are many different views on whether the biblical book of Romans accurately displays an accurate display of the gospel through the use of the “Roman Road” dialog. The Roman Road utilizes specific scriptures throughout the book and lays the foundation for the non-believer to get a glimpse of our sin and God’s grace and forgiveness. The method starts by declaring humans are sinful people, Romans 3:10 “as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one;” Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and…

    Sidra Zimmerman Ministry Project

 The People and the Situation As was first mentioned in my ministry group project proposal, the group I chose was my own small group.
