In this episode of the Backyard Preacher Podcast Nate examines faith and works.  James says faith without works is dead.  Yet what are these works?  Is it right action?  Religious ritual?  Loving your neighbor?  These are all great, but we humans will always come up short.  The fact is we cannot please God through right action.  Being a “good” person; Jesus himself said “who is good?”  The problem is many of us try to please God through right action that we become infatuated with our religious belief, rituals, and deeds it creates a type of religious OCD.
