Epistle of James and Social Justice

Description

Epistle of James and Social Justice

The first verses of the Epistle engages the Christians to grow in faith while striving towards a perfect conduct because faith itself can only the shown by its works. Chapters 3 – 5 build on the teaching of the Old Testament prophets; the rich and the powerful should treat the poor and the powerless with justice and not take advantage of their low social status. The whole Epistle gives a teaching on the social requirements of faith and provides a source of inspiration for the social commitment of the Christian today.
