In context they had seeing faith. In context Thomas had seeing faith. And in context today people have unseen faith.

Matt. 20
27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

So who gave them that faith? Who gave Thomas his faith? They are the same kind of faith. Produced within the person just like many will believe without seeing, that faith being produced inside of them. Quit making it some kind of magical thing that people can't grasp or understand. Also, I don't care if you insult me or misrepresent me which you have done many times already. However, please do not insult the word of God with such gross misinterpretations and misrepresentations of his word. He doesn't take to that very lightly.

The demons possess the SAME type of faith as Thomas? If they were the same type then it would be possible for demons to be saved, you're not thinking JJJ. Why would God bestow faith to demons? The context of James is a belief that saves a and a belief that doesn't. Faith is what? "....the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." What hope do demons have? NONE, nada, naught, zero, zilch! So how do they possess the same faith as true believers? Common sense isn't so common JJJ.

Actually, the context of James is people who are already saved. The reason that a demon cannot have redemption is because they have no sacrifice. A perfect man had to die to provide a redemption plan for man.

Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

However, this is totally off topic and no one said they could get saved. I was saying it is the same word and since you said faith comes from God, then, according to your logic, the devils got their belief in God from him.

The thing that you miss is that the Holy Ghost convicts all. We all have that nudge from God to believe, and we all have the choice whether we agree with him that we are a sinner and turn from our sins or not.

Please stop teaching your irresistable grace theories here. They aren't welcome.
