The James Two Equation: Here Is HELP With Voting By Mail Or Registering

Common Sense Commentary: There is a common mistake many Christians make. The idea that faith alone is all God requires of His people for their welfare, for justice to win out and for God's will to be done. Many Christians who believed that have lost their their health, their families, their freedom or their lives... because of their failure to put feet to their prayers, to "do" their part in God's James Two Equation. Jesus "built" his church, "Commissioned" it, and "empowered" it with the Holy Spirit. But one more thing was required .... Obedience to the "go" in the Commission... "works", the action of the Apostles and other Christian disciples recorded in the book of Acts, the book of Action. It is true that Salvation is by Grace through Faith and not of works, but God uses the actions, the works of His disciples to carry that salvation message to the lost and to do good works for Him. That is why the Apostle Paul declared that the ugliest part of the human body, the feet, were beautiful when they went to work for Jesus... "... as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!" Rom.10:15.

God has given us a vital part in accomplishing his will and work on earth .... good works..... obedience ... "go ye".

Here is the James Two Equation:
James 2:17-26 
Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
18Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
20But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
21Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
22Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
23And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
24Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
25Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?

26For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
The Christian vote is neither faith alone nor works alone but the work of faith in doing what is best for our country, for our children, for God's people and for America's future.

Because our faith and works matter, I have made a commitment to vote this election year. Together, we can achieve the seemingly impossible because of Who we serve, and because there's strength in numbers. Join me in taking the pledge to vote, and show that your faith is real ... by our works. Follow this link and take the pledge and get help with voting by mail or registering. RB

I'm reminded of Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
