Study # 6
October 1, 1997
Harlingen, Texas

Thesis:Adopting the proper perspective toward difficulties requires that we understand that there are some real and final gains and losses that derive from our decisions.

Introduction:The doctrine of justification by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, to the glory of God alone, has always carried with it a certain dangerous false tendency: the tendency to think that a single decision at a single point in time in this life opens all of the glory of heaven up to the justified one. But this is a deceitful lie. It is a lie that James understood clearly and one which he was adamant about unveiling. This evening we want to look into James' perspective on heaven.
