When we spread gossip or talk behind our brother’s back, we’re really sitting in judgment. But God is the only one who can judge, which is why we need to stop putting ourselves in His place. Our study in James continues on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg!
The Christian life involves a constant battle against sin. Christians are often guilty of “respectable” sins that may not seem gross by the world’s standards, but about which the Bible speaks quite strongly. As Alistair Begg continues our study in James, we see how far short we fall of God’s perfect standard.

This wonderfully practical study reminds us of our great need of a Savior and points us to the Cross, where we find complete forgiveness and peace. Having peace with God compels us to resist these sins as God draws us ever closer to Himself.

They are earthborn things and arise from the miry places of our lives; and when they collect and their measure is ...
