Discussion for James 1

  • David V
    Bruce, though the same Greek word for temptation is used it is spoken of in 2 contexts. The first is one in which you "fall into". This is meant to try the faith and produce enduring obedience and faithfulness to God as we experience His grace more and more.
    The second refers to being tempted with that which God cannot be, evil. This comes from within and is inherent in our flesh see Romans 7.
  • Bruce
    Dave:Persecution is hostility or ill-treatment especially because of race or political or religious beliefs. Temptatian: a desire to do something especially something wrong or unwise. Let's get to the "Heart" of the matter.V:14. Temptation comes from within. ( Temptation is not persecution.) John 6:44,1John1:9,you will be Matthew 3:11. You will know! 2Corinthians 5:17. Impossible not to know.
  • David V
    Temptation, or testing, can come both from without and within. Jesus was tempted in the wilderness yet we know that He had no sin in Him. When our inward lust draws us away from God(temptation) at the time we are given opportunity to respond one way or the other(temptation), that is when sin comes about. Persecution is temptation because it gives opportunity to respond according to faith or lust.
  • Vince
    Temptation is not sin, giving in to it is. We must recognize it for what it is and act accordingly

  • Ronald Beal
    Temptation comes from within- we are drawn away, (from the provision of God) when we seek to obtain in our own strength. Lusting is not the temptation to break the Law; Leaving the provision/ power of God and attempting to obtain in our own strength, i.e., Sin. The provision by God is called Faith, all that is not of Faith is Sin, period. Follow "Faith" through the scriptures for confirmation.
