Scripture: James 2:14–2:19

The Danger of Superficial Faith

James 2:14-19

June 17, 2018






  1. Key question: If a person professes Jesus as their Savior, but lacks good deeds toward others, is their faith genuine? James 2:14-16




  1. James’ conclusion: No, their faith is dead. James 2:17




  • Objection: Cannot some individuals specialize in faith or belief without showing much in the way of good deeds? James 2:18-19









Questions for reflection:

  • What evidence can you see in your life that you have true faith in the Lord?
  • What do you regard as signs of a mere intellectual belief as opposed to true belief in the Lord?
