For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
1 Corinthians 1:11
for I have been inform'd, my brethren, by some of Chloe's family, that there are contentions among you.
1 Corinthians 6:1
When any controversy arises among you, will any one presume to appeal to the Gentiles, and not to Christians?
1 Corinthians 11:18
for first, I hear, that when you come together in the church, you fall into parties; and I believe it is true of some of you.
2 Corinthians 12:20
yet I fear when I do come I shall not find you such as I would, and that you will find me such as you least desire: I am afraid there are among you debates, envyings, animosities, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, arrogance, tumults:
but if you bite and tear one another, take heed that you be not consumed by one another.
where false zeal, and a spirit of contention reign, there confusion and every vice prevail.
you breathe slaughter and revenge for what you cannot obtain.
for from within, from the heart of man proceed wicked designs, adulteries, fornications, murders; thefts,
in which you formerly liv'd, influenc'd by the customs of this world, and by the prince of the aerial powers, the spirits that now actuate the incredulous:
to quit the vicious habits of your former conversation, corrupted by deceitful passions:
for even we ourselves were once inconsiderate, disobedient, deluded, addicted to variety of passions and pleasures, living in malice and envy, the deserving objects of mutual hatred.
1 Peter 4:2
so that for the future he does not pass the rest of this life in gratifying his sensual passions, but in conformity to the divine precepts.
