If you’re a Christian, you must prove your faith by the way you live your life. Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength . . . and then keep His commandments because you love Him. It’s easy to spot a fake. You know, somebody who talks a good game but doesn’t actually do anything. James knew this. It’s why he wrote this:
Controlling your speech is just one common example which makes a wider point. Talk is cheap. Prove your repentance and faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ by your life of habitual, loving obedience to His law.
- This is my own translation of James 1:26. The details can be found here.

Are u learning Greek via distance ed? May I ask what method, text book etc? Thanks!
I take Greek via virtual classes from Maranatha Baptist Seminary, where I’m studying for my MDiv. The seminary is in Wisconsin, I’m in Washington State. I’m in class via the internet and can interact with students and the professor in real-time. My first-year grammar was by William Mounce (“Basics of Biblical Greek, 3rd ed). My second-year syntax book was by Richard Young (“Intermediate Grammar of the New Testament”).
