James 1:22-27

BE ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass. For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Iacobus 1:22-27

estote autem factores verbi et non auditores tantum fallentes vosmet ipsos quia si quis auditor est verbi et non factor hic conparabitur viro consideranti vultum nativitatis suae in speculo consideravit enim se et abiit et statim oblitus est qualis fuerit qui autem perspexerit in lege perfecta libertatis et permanserit non auditor obliviosus factus sed factor operis hic beatus in facto suo erit si quis autem putat se religiosum esse non refrenans linguam suam sed seducens cor suum huius vana est religio religio munda et inmaculata apud Deum et Patrem haec est visitare pupillos et viduas in tribulatione eorum inmaculatum se custodire ab hoc saeculo

rogamus autem vos fratres corripite inquietos consolamini pusillianimes suscipite infirmos patientes estote ad omnes

1 Thessalonians 5:14

I would be curious what the prevailing Bible version of choice is. If I had to guess at least in the US then NIV would be the primary choice. Personally I’m not a huge fan of NIV due to its sing songy phrasing as I prefer meticulous literal translation. KJV gets a bad reputation due to its history and morphology/syntax. Recently I have been fluctuating between the Latin Vulgate and the Orthodox Study Bible. 

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

James 1:5

iustificati igitur ex fide pacem habeamus ad Deum per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum (Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ)

Romans 5:1 (Latin Vulgate)

I compiled this list mainly due to vast amount of misinterpreting of scripture in particular old testament laws. There is nothing more cringe worthy then someone who learns something but lacks understanding. It appears many are unable to comprehend what is moral law, ceremonial law, and civic law as well as the establishment of the new covenant. So I will only post new testament laws this time. I typically use the Latin Vulgate Bible in my own reading but I will use a more modern translation the English Standard Version. 

1 Corinthians 6:18Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God;

Matthew 5:28But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Hebrews 13:4Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

Colossians 3:5Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

Galatians 5:19Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality,

Mark 7:20-23: And He [Jesus] said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”

Jude 1:7Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

1 Timothy 1:9-10: Understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine,

 

I implore you to not just take my own word for it but to research these passages yourself. Its good to go read the context in order to get a full understanding of their meaning. Remember these are not condemning people rather their behavior. All people are capable of asking for God’s forgiveness and God will forgive all who come before him with true contrition. 

Baldwin IV 

3. in carne enim ambulantes non secundum carnem militamus 4. nam arma militiae nostrae non carnalia sed potentia Deo ad destructionem munitionum consilia destruentes (3. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty to God, unto the pulling down of fortifications, destroying counsels,)

2 Corinthians 10:3-4 (Latin Vulgate)
