FITC32 | Discrimination, the Gospel, and the Church – James 2:1-12

Discrimination is just plain ugly.  No matter the reason why it might have happened, when a person feels discriminated against, it can be a very painful experience. So is the church any better at avoiding this social problem?

Unfortunately, for the church, prejudice against certain groups can happen even in conservative, evangelical churches.  So what is the cure? Well in this sermon, we discover what James has to say about the sin of discrimination and how to avoid it.
