Jam 2:14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?


Faith is one the most predominate subjects of spirituality & the outward working of what one believes can be considered as the real evidence faith.

However I appreciate different schools of thought about this important subject of faith.
I understand the context of this verse within the over all chapter in James 2:14 onwards.

Faith first is demonstrated vertical then expressed horizontal.
The fruit of our faith should provoke “Action” which is classified as works.

I would like to share something from my journal I wrote about the virtues of the Christian faith

Faith can develop into a virtue recognisable in character from the point of believing God to engaging with people. The greatest challenge of faith comes when one is dealing with internal or personal issues especially when the desire to live right becomes fragile.

So, is faith about application or the partnership between God & mankind?

My mindset has gone beyond faith just being a requirement…

So what is the virtues of faith?
Believing • Trusting • Hoping
Job is a great character who displayed these virtues ~ job 14:14

The bible says : Abraham believed God and it was accounted to him as righteousness Rom 4:3

Sounds like a currency exchange to me.
Did Abraham believe in what God said or did he believe in the person who engaged him?

A great point to consider…

For me its about the person christ who lived demonstrating exceptional qualities through the power of God
Acts 10:38

So faith isn’t just standing on the word but growing to know the dependable character of him who consistently remains the same. heb 13:8

If you meet some one for the first time would you believe every word they say?
I guess not.

So the scriptures are true, faith comes by hearing not just once or twice but continuously hearing Rom 10:17

The currency of faith is accounted to whosoever believe to receive the virtues of Christ.

So then, virtue remains transferable into currency in term of spiritual or human relationships.


For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ…
2Peter 1:5-8

“Fellowship is life”

One of our greatest tool’s isn’t a gun…

20121220-133325.jpg

Consciousness needs stimulation just like any level physical development

Our moral compass is one of our greatest tools

The basis of our beliefs and life experiences is our “internal reference”

What’s guiding us is our awareness through consciousness

no one can teach you & no one give you consciousness, it’s something you must seek & develop.

“Christ Consciousness the way forward” Merry Christmas to you all… as we share the grief with the families who lost their children in this tragic incident

“Live life with definition”

A few good men…

wounds of a soldier : written 8th of november 2012

Millions of people profess to know the truth. Today millions of people will enter churches world wide honouring the God of their salvation.

Some will leave feeling uplifted as some will return to the lies they have always believed.

How much do we love the truth or is it just a statement a cover up.

Are you hurting are you bitter with some one, is sin an issue for you

Meekness is the sign of humility…. When we can handle the truth and the reality of the truth and accept The process of the truth

Thanks for taking the time to consider others this day as we also remember enlisted service men & women, God fearing people attending church today and everyone seeking some salvation.

You shall know the & the truth shall set you John 8:32

What did Jesus do in the presences of his disciples when there wasn’t enough to feed the crowd …bless the little they had and gave thanks….

Lord today we remember those effected by the hurricane in America. Lord you are the light of the world, may you shine in the midst of the darkness as many families & friends are facing right now…
You said a wise man builds on solid ground and everything is else is sinking sand. Just as we saw in 9/11 communities and races were working together for the sake of all humanity let this be a reminder for us of our moral responsibility to love, care and share the values of Christ

ROM 13:8
Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.
