    A person is declared righteous on the basis of faith - salvation is not an outcome of faith alone - at the least, there must be confession with the mouth as well. See Rom 10:9-10

    And yes - James is saying, "Don't blame God when you're tempted to do evil, you're the one at fault." The Koine Greek words for temptation and tempt cover a wider range than does temptation in...
