Galatians 5:11-21

WNT 11 As for me, brethren, if I am still a preacher of circumcision, how is it that I am still suffering persecution? In that case the Cross has ceased to be a stumbling-block! NIV 11 Brothers, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been abolished. WNT 12 Would to God that those who are unsettling your faith would even mutilate themselves. NIV 12 As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves! WNT 13 You however, brethren, were called to freedom. Only do not turn your freedom into an excuse for giving way to your lower natures; but become bondservants to one another in a spirit of love. NIV 13 You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. WNT 14 For the entire Law has been obeyed when you have kept the single precept, which says, "You are to love your fellow man equally with yourself." NIV 14 The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself." WNT 15 But if you are perpetually snarling and snapping at one another, beware lest you are destroyed by one another. NIV 15 If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. WNT 16 This then is what I mean. Let your lives be guided by the Spirit, and then you will certainly not indulge the cravings of your lower natures. NIV 16 So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. WNT 17 For the cravings of the lower nature are opposed to those of the Spirit, and the cravings of the Spirit are opposed to those of the lower nature; because these are antagonistic to each other, so that you cannot do everything to which you are inclined. NIV 17 For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. WNT 18 But if the Spirit is leading you, you are not subject to Law. NIV 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law. WNT 19 Now you know full well the doings of our lower natures. Fornication, impurity, indecency, idol-worship, sorcery; NIV 19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; WNT 20 enmity, strife, jealousy, outbursts of passion, intrigues, dissensions, factions, envyings; NIV 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions WNT 21 hard drinking, riotous feasting, and the like. And as to these I forewarn you, as I have already forewarned you, that those who are guilty of such things will have no share in the Kingdom of God. NIV 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
