Faith Without Works is Dead

Bradley Mattes   |   October 12, 2012

A very pregnant homeless woman stood outside a mega-church. She was helped by a pro-life activist, but the large church only talked to her about the Gospel and nothing else. The second chapter of James has lots to say about faith without acts of kindness—it’s useless. It’s easy not to want to step out of our comfort zone to offer help. I just returned from Ecuador. One of those days I was rushing from a speaking engagement to a TV studio for an interview. I walked past a woman, well into her eighties, asking for help. Then I asked myself, “What am I doing?” I turned around and gave her some money and others in the group did the same. As Christians, we need to be there to help the helpless, and this includes pregnant women. Get your church involved. And visit today’s broadcast link at life issues dot org to find out how.
