Overview Love Letters is a collection of soul-born poetry that is an expression of the writer's daily walk with the love of her life-Jesus Christ. The book renders responses to spiritual and emotional struggles and triumphs, prayers and miraculous answers, along with times of supposed distance from God and renewed fellowship and devotion. It is relatable to anyone who is familiar with the pains associated with life, and daily interactions with people who are sometimes not so kind.
It keeps us reminded that there is Someone always present to help us pick up the pieces and go on, to love us, to comfort us and encourage us to be all that we can. He-Jesus-is the Lover to whom these songs are written, both the giver, and the object of utmost affection.

Paul was dealing with one kind of error while James was dealing with a different error. The errorists Paul was dealing with were people who said that works of the law were needed to be added to faith in order to help earn God's favor. Paul countered this error by pointing out that salvation was by faith alone apart from deeds of the law Galatians ; Romans Paul also taught that saving faith is not dead but alive, showing thanks to God in deeds of love Galatians [' James was dealing with errorists who said that if they had faith they didn't need to show love by a life of faith James James countered this error by teaching that faith is alive, showing itself to be so by deeds of love James , James and Paul both teach that salvation is by faith alone and also that faith is never alone but shows itself to be alive by deeds of love that express a believer's thanks to God for the free gift of salvation by faith in Jesus.
According to Ben Witherington III , differences exist between the Apostle Paul and James, but both used the law of Moses , the teachings of Jesus and other Jewish and non-Jewish sources, and "Paul was not anti-law any more than James was a legalist ".

The epistle is also the chief biblical text for the Anointing of the Sick. James wrote:. Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Wells suggested that the passage was evidence of late authorship of the epistle, on the grounds that the healing of the sick being done through an official body of presbyters elders indicated a considerable development of ecclesiastical organisation "whereas in Paul's day to heal and work miracles pertained to believers indiscriminately I Corinthians, XII The Epistle was first explicitly referred to and quoted by Origen of Alexandria [ citation needed ] , and possibly a bit earlier by Irenaeus of Lyons  as well as Clement of Alexandria in a lost work according to Eusebius [ citation needed ] , although it was not mentioned by Tertullian , who was writing at the end of the Second Century.
Today, virtually all denominations of Christianity consider this book to be a canonical epistle of the New Testament. In the first centuries of the Church the authenticity of the Epistle was doubted by some, including Theodore , Bishop of Mopsuestia in Cilicia.
Because of the silence of several of the western churches regarding it, Eusebius classes it among the Antilegomena or contested writings Historia ecclesiae , 3. Jerome gives a similar appraisal but adds that with time it had been universally admitted. Its late recognition in the Church, especially in the West, may be explained by the fact that it was written for or by Jewish Christians , and therefore not widely circulated among the Gentile Churches.
There is some indication that a few groups distrusted the book because of its doctrine. In Reformation times a few theologians, most notably Martin Luther in his early career,  argued that this epistle should not be part of the canonical New Testament. Martin Luther's description of the Epistle of James changes.
In some cases, Luther argues that it was not written by an apostle; but in other cases, he describes James as the work of an apostle. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
