Insight for Living with Chuck Swindoll

The Perils of Playing God, Part 1

diciembre 9, 2016

In coming to an end of the fourth chapter, James deals directly with a common problem among Christians—“playing God.” Having just exposed our tendency to be self-assertive and quarrelsome (4:1–10), he goes a step further and shows a couple of the more familiar ways we assert an arrogant spirit. The first has to do with the way we often view others…and the second has to do with the way we often view ourselves. In the first section (4:11–12) he deals with our tendency to take the place of God in others’ lives as we judge or criticize them. In the second section (4:13–16), he deals with our tendency to take the place of God in our own lives as we presume or boast in ourselves.
