No Partiality

Passage: James 2:1-13

Geoffrey Turner explains how we consciously or unconsciously form opinions when immediately seeing someone based on surface level attributes. These formed opinions leave us showing favoritism or partiality. The book of James highlights this judgement as sin and explains how partiality opposes the gospel and blocks its spread. As believers, we have to strive to never live our lives in such a way that our actions, prejudices, partiality, or judgement pushes someone away from the most important thing they can ever know. Jesus died for them, and the gospel is for everyone!
