Romans 1:28-29 “And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them up to a mind void of judgment, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife.”

1 Corinthians 3:1-3 “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to men motivated-and-controlled-through-your-spirit, but as to men motivated-and-controlled-through-your-flesh, as to babes in Christ. I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able, for you are still motivated-and-controlled-through-your-flesh. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not motivated-and-controlled-through-your-flesh, and are you not walking like mere men?”
Galatians 5:19-21 “Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, lewdness, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you just as I have forewarned you that those who practice such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”
Philippians 1:15-18 “Some, to be sure, are preaching Christ even from envy and strife, but some also from good will; the latter do it out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel; the former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, rather than from pure motives, thinking to cause me distress in my imprisonment. What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in this I rejoice, yes, and I will rejoice.”
1 Timothy 6:3-5 “If anyone advocates a different doctrine, and does not agree with sound words, those of our-Lord-Jesus-Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness, He is conceited and understands nothing; but he has a morbid interest in controversial questions and disputes about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions, and constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain.”
Titus 3:9-11 “But shun foolish controversies and genealogies and strife and disputes about the Law; for they are unprofitable and worthless. Reject a factious man after a first and second warning, knowing that such a man is perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned."
