“Does Scripture Speak in Vain?” (James 4:5)

Or do you suppose that it is in vain that scripture says what it does? (James 4:5)

Answer: No, of course not. God does not speak aimless words. He means what he says and he says what he means. And he expects us to listen and obey.

The words of scripture are not mere words of advice or suggestion that we can weigh and choose to do with as we wish. They are the words of God that come to us as the summon of our cosmic King.

We are bound by them. We have no choice in the matter. They are not spoken in vain. We will be held accountable for our inaction.
