The Group returns to start the new year right. And we are still in James. James 3 to be exact, and the group talks about peace and righteousness and wisdom.
So, if the tongue blesses the Lord and then curses men, what does that say about the Christian and our spiritual state? We keep going through James 3. And we may have talked about other stuff too.
The gang continues to talk about the dangers of talking. Taming the tongue and the power that resides in our words. James 3:1-10 are discussed.
The whole gang has returned and we are going to move on from James 2 into James 3. We deal with what it means when it talks about teachers and we begin to lead into the discussion of the tongue.
Rev Powell and I discuss what James is telling us about the nature of faith and how it differs from the demons who believe.
Rev. Powell and I discuss the tricky idea of lying and can a Christian do it, is it always a sin, and whether or not JP is binge watching Netflix shows.
Our team is finally reassembled and we begin our discussion of James 2 and the relationship of faith and works, and how to reconcile James and Paul.
