James’s Vision of the Perfect Man and Woman

Seven Talks on the Epistle of James

David Gooding


The complete audio series of ‘Seven Talks on the Epistle of James’.

‘If anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man.’ (James 3:2)

James does not mean sinless. We shall not be talking about sinless perfection, though we believe with all our hearts that one day—when the Lord comes—we shall be sinlessly perfect. We are talking about perfection in the sense of ‘maturity’; a fully–grown, developed character.

In that sense, therefore, we are to read James’s lessons as to what those features are that mark a fully mature, fully grown believer. Once more we shall have to admit to ourselves what James tells us: ‘we all stumble in many ways’. None of us has yet attained and we have to say with the Apostle Paul himself, ‘Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own’ (Phil 3:12).
