Discords (chapter 4)

James asked where did their conflicts and disputes come from?  He answered his own question.  They come from human cravings within them.  There is a war going on within them.  They want something that they do not have.  This could lead to murder.  If you desired something and can’t get it, do you start disputes and conflict?  One of the reasons that you don’t get stuff is that you don’t ask.  However, when you do ask, you ask wrongly.  You are only concerned about your own pleasures.  He then called them adulterers.  He warned them that friendship with the world makes them an enemy of God.  Are you friendly with God or the world around you?
