Wars and Conflicts

Wars and Conflicts

JamesJames 4:1 – 6 From where do waging wars and conflicts come among you? Do they not come from here: out from your pleasures, the ones serving as soldiers in your members? All of you desire, and do not have. All of you murder and all of you are jealous and are not caused to have the natural ability to obtain. You fight and wage war. You do not have because you do not ask, as a lessor to a greater. You ask, as a lessor to a greater, and you do not receive because you incorrectly10 ask, as a lessor to a greater, in order that you spending it freely by your own pleasures. Adulterers and adulteresses, do you not intuitively know that the fondness of the world is hostility concerning God? Therefore the one determining to be a friend belonging to the world constitutes himself an enemy pertaining to God. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The spirit, which settled down and feels at ease among you, longs towards envy”? And he gives more favor, wherefore saying, “God arranges Himself in battle against the arrogant, but give favor to the humble.”
