Faith and works paul vs james one of the thorniest textual problems any christian can face is the apparent contradiction between paul and james is justification by faith as paul claims or by works as james seems to say this problem actually has a very simple solution. So there are three ways in this passage that james talks about faith to show that the faith he says cannot justify is a faith that paul would totally agree cannot justify dead faith devil faith and useless faith faith that has no vital life that works through love. He also believed good works were necessary for eternal life but both paul and james believed such works were the fruit of saving faith not the root in the beauty and completeness of gods word paul and james teach complementary not contradictory truths. What paul and james actually wrote galatians 216 yet we know that a person is justified not by the works of the law but through faith in of jesus christand we have come to believe in christ jesus so that we might be justified by faith in of christ and not by doing the works of the law because no one will be justified by the works of the law. Is justification by faith as paul claims or by works as james seems to say this problem actually has a very simple solution for some christians one of the thorniest problems in the bible is the apparent contradiction between paul and james
