Judgment on Pre-Judgment (James 2:8-13)
Mar 27, 2020 Season 1 Episode 10

"Prejudice" is making a (usually negative) judgment about something or someone that is not based on evidence, experience, or reason. Examples of prejudice include racism, nationalism, sexism, etc. Another word for this is "bias," meaning we favor someone or some group over another for no good reason.

Because of our sinful hearts, bias and prejudice are easy and fighting them is difficult. They are common and fighting them is rare. Bias and prejudice will continue unchecked unless we deliberately confront it. In James 2:8-13, James confronts our prejudice and challenges us to change our bias both in the present and the future.
