Demonic Faith

James 2:19, “You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe–and shudder!”  The faith of demons — Demonic faith!  Do you have it?  Do you want such faith?

What is Demonic Faith?  James says any faith that does not act on behalf of God in Christ for the good of others and for the mission of God is useless.  Any faith lacking in demonstrative effort is not faith, but merely mental acknowledgement of the person of Jesus.  That type of faith is not enough.  That “faith” is demonic.  Such claims to be for God, but is in actuality a tool of the Devil.  Such a so-called faith may make one think they are right with God when they are not.  Such a so-called faith may sound good to those who hear one proclaim it.  But it is demonic, the faith of demons!

Real, authentic faith in Christ, leads to salvation by the grace of God so that we can be about God’s mission.  We do not work to earn our salvation, but because God graciously saved us we work in His kingdom. (Eph 2:8-10; Titus 3:1ff)

Avoid Demonic Faith!
