Disabusing James 2:17, Part 2: Why do some insist that dead faith is “false faith? “


Faith Without Words is Dead

An increasing number of theologians and pastors are vehemently insisting that “dead faith” is not living faith which has died, but a false or counterfeit faith which was never true faith at all, in spite of there being no biblical support for such a definition of “dead.” Instead, this is an example of when a theological perspective demands that the text be interpreted in keeping with its theology, rather than theology being shaped by Scripture.
