  • James 1:12-27
  • James 1:12 – The context shows that the trials being referenced here are not those that come from outside, but from within. It is the conflict between the carnal man and the spiritual man.
  • James 1:14 – Compare Romans 7:14-25.
  • James 1:15 – Sin occurs when lust has conceived, and a person has decided to sin. Whether or not the sinful act is carried out, the person has already committed sin in his heart.
  • James 1:19 – See Ephesians 4:26.
  • James 1:25 – This verse by itself refutes the doctrine of salvation by faith only. We have to hear and then do God’s will to be acceptable to Him.
