DHK or any others that believe like DHK; There are those here who believe and teach that James speaks of a dead faith for people who are already Christians, and not about a faith someone needs when they want to be saved. However, why would you believe that James is speaking about a dead faith BEFORE one is a Christian when James says, “Can such faith save him?” That scripture is proof that it is about becoming saved and staying saved. James says faith without deeds is useless, James 2:20. So how did that same useless faith become SAVING faith, as taught by others here? How did that same useless faith be the kind that turns out to be the most important kind of useful faith there can or ever will be? It is simple, it cannot be. In your beliefs, James calls life saving faith a dead faith. Please explain why James would call SAVING FAITH a dead faith for a Christian. Please explain better how you even think James is only explaining faith AFTER already being saved and not before, when he uses Abraham before the works of circumcision as an example. Faith without works of the law is what Paul teaches, not faith without sorrow for sins! Faith without circumcision is what Paul teaches in the Bible, not faith with any kind of right action is worthy of condemnation. That is what many argue and teach here on this board. Show me one scripture that says what you teach, that to believe and be sorry for sins is not possible and is heresy. Show me one warning from the Bible that says believe and do not be sorry or confess or you will be condemned. The Bible says we are to search for God, but you say that is impossible and heresy. If a person is still searching for God, then they are not yet saved! If we are searching for God, we are doing something! It is NOT a sin, as you teach. You teach that an unsaved person is to believe in Jesus but do not feel sorry for sins or cry or shudder or do anything else, for to do so is a work and you will be condemned. If you do not obey Jesus, then you are not saved, that is what the Bible says. So, how do you think that no obedience then got you saved? How do you think no obedience got you saved if not obeying means you are not saved? You say we are not to obey in any way to be saved. Since that is your belief, tell me, why does Jesus say he will make his home with the one he knows, but you claim he makes his home with those who do not yet obey and therefore those he does NOT know?
