Scripture text: James 1:12-18          Preacher: Rev. David Sutherland          Date: 22 November 2015

This sermon continues a series of studies in the letter written by James the brother of Jesus.
It is claimed by some that the evil thoughts and actions emanating from ourselves have their origin in God. In today’s text James refutes that idea, and places the blame for our evil behaviour firmly where it belongs — in ourselves. Today’s sermon draws both correction and comfort from this passage of Scripture.
