The world is full of hypocrites, religious nominalism and spiritual imposters. How can we know if our faith is real? Is it by comparing ourselves with others or is there a more sure word? Ever Nearer is a verse by verse study of James that looks at what true religion and authentic faith in Jesus looks like and how we might draw ever nearer to Jesus.
