I was speaking with another this morning regarding James 5:14. His position on this is that most people often take it out of context..., further stating this verse refers to those who are sick, the result of sin. His position is that a person who becomes ill, due to sin in their lives, the illness is a result of our Lord trying to get that person's attention. That most people only focus on the physical illness vice the spiritual illness. But I notice in verse 15, in part, "and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him." Then again, verse 16, we are to "Confess your faults." I understand all of the above to mean that if one is physically sick they can call on the elders for prayer; and in the process sins will be forgiven; and, of lesser importance regarding the full context here, there is a vast difference between "sins" and "faults". So, I'm seeking your position and insights on all of the above but specifically, regarding the intended context of verse 14.
