Is hope a choice? Why does this choice matter? Listen below (or read here) as Emily explores questions and ideas about hope and cynicism and what this means for the future of the church in our world.

We were pleased to have Graham MacDonald share his thoughts with us on one of his favourite scripture passages from James 2:14-26.

My sisters and brothers, what good is it to profess faith without practicing it? Such faith has no power to save. If any are in need of clothes and have no food to live on, and one of you says to them, “Goodbye and good luck. Stay warm and well-fed,” without giving them the bare necessities of life, then what good is this? So it is with faith. If good deeds don’t go with it, faith is dead.

Some of you will say that you have faith, while I have deeds. Fine: I’ll prove to you that I have faith by showing you my good deeds. Now you prove to me that you have faith without any good deeds to show. You believe in the One God. Fine. But even the demons have the same belief, and they tremble with fear. Don’t you realize, you idiots, that faith without good deeds is useless?

Wasn’t our ancestor Abraham justified by his actions when he offered his child Isaac on the altar? There you see proof that faith and deeds were working together and that faith was made complete by the deeds. You also see that the scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as justice.” This is why he is called “the friend of God.” So you see, people are justified by their works and not by faith alone.

And in the same way, wasn’t even Rahab the prostitute justified by works when she welcomed the messengers and showed them a different way to leave?

Be assured, then, that faith without works is as dead as a body without a spirit.
