James 2:17 Says “Faith Without Works Is Dead”, A Non Religious View of This Verse

In James 2:17 we read that faith without works is dead, and this has many Christians pulling out their clip board measuring their works to make sure their faith doesn’t die. In this video we discover that James in not talking about Christian works, but rather he is addressing a one time work of believing that saves the lost (who at present has dead faith). Take note of the question James asked in James 2:14 “Can that faith save him?” and you begin to understand what the Apostle was getting at. Share your thoughts below.

Mike Cynar grew up in church and observed that countless people would go to church and then just stop. The church always referred to them as ‘fake Christians’ or ‘backsliders’ but Mike discovered the problem was deeper. The problem was the church message. The message was 90% behavior improvement and how bad you are, with a pinch of who you are in Christ, It was like every sermon was being preached to the church of Corinth. It’s in the Baptist church, Catholic, Pentecost, and most every other church. After discovering the true gospel message and how we are made right with God because of what ‘Jesus did’ (not what ‘we do’) Mike set out to free believers from behavior improvement programs and bring them back to Jesus. The Result – Jesus Without Religion was launched.
