And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why then do I yet suffer persecution? Then would the offense of the cross cease.
I would that they were even cut off which trouble you!
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion of the flesh, but by love serve one another.
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself."
But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye not be consumed one by another.
This I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary the one to the other, so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
But if ye are led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, and they are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, quarreling, rivalry, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
envying, murders, drunkenness, revelings, and such like. About these things I tell you again, as I have also told you in times past, that those who do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of God.
