But despite Luther's problems with James, there's a great quote from Luther which expresses perfectly, I think, James's theology of faith and works - ironically, it comes from his preface to his commentary on Romans! The quote is:<br /><br />"O it is a living, busy active mighty thing, this faith. It is impossible for it not to be doing good things incessantly. It does not ask whether good works are to be done, but before the question is asked, it has already done this, and is constantly doing them. Whoever does not do such works, however, is an unbeliever. He gropes and looks for faith and good works, but knows neither what faith is nor what good works are. Yet he talks and talks, with many words, about faith and good works."Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
