Without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). Therefore, it should be of no surprise to any clearheaded person that Satan—the master counterfeiter—offers imitations of the genuine.
What are the distinct characteristics of this spiritual essential called faith? How can you discern between the counterfeits Satan offers and the genuine God requires? James, a bondservant of God and the Lord Jesus Christ provides plain and practical answers to these important questions.
There are Satan’s counterfeits of “faith” and words. It is unprofitable and dead (James 2:14-17). He also offers “faith” or works. It is demonic and useless (James 2:18-20).
Then, there is the real deal of faith and works. It is complete and justifies (James 2:21-26).
Beware! You cannot afford the “faith” Satan is selling.
