1 Beloved, stop believing [or, trusting] every spirit, but be testing the spirits [to see] if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

James 2:14-17

14 What [is] the advantage, my brothers [and sisters], if someone is saying he has faith but is not having works? Such faith is not able to save him, is it? 15 Now if a brother or sister is naked [or, poorly dressed] and is lacking of the daily food, 16 yet any of youp says to them, "Be going away in peace; be keeping yourselves warm and well fed," but does not give to them the necessary [things] of the body, what [is] the advantage? 17 So also such faith, if it is not having works, is dead [fig., utterly useless] by itself.

Matthew 5:21-22

21 "You heard that it was said to the ancients: "You will not murder," but whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment. [Exod 20:13; Deut 5:17] 22 "But I say to youp, every [one] being enraged at his brother without cause will be in danger of the judgment, and whoever says to his brother, 'Empty-headed fool!' will be in danger of the high council, and whoever says, 'You worthless fool!' will be in danger of the hell [Gr., gehenna] of the fire [or, the fiery hell].
