You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.
Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us ?
But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”
