Hello everyone and welcome to the Christian Educational Ministries Weekend Bible Study.
Tonight we present teacher, speaker, author and Pastor of The Church of God Restored in Simi Valley, California—Mardy Cobb. Join us now for part one of an insightful and informative study on the Epistle of James.
If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
Mardy Cobb is the pastor of the Church of God Restored (www.cogrestored.org). He also serves as the director of Child of God Rescue, a non-profit organization operating a home and school in Kenya for orphans and fatherless children. The mission of Child of God Rescue is to provide food, facilities, and parental guides in a loving environment, with teachers, supplies and curriculum necessary to meet the vision—highly educated young adults who have the loving structure and secure attachments necessary for stability in life, and are the best candidates for jobs and other opportunities. The rescue hopes to give these children a better future through education. More information is available at cogrescue.org.
