Another question that was raised concerns vs12. How are we judged by the law that gives freedom?
All of us are going to be judged after we die but as Christians we are to "Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom." This is Christ's law. As Christians we are covered by the blood of Christ and will receive mercy instead of condemnation in the final judgment. BUT, we will still give an accounting of what we have done so James is reminding us to speak and act as though we're remembering this! The law gives freedom from our oppression from sin. Thank you Jesus!!!
