1 Corinthians 6:18-20

18 Flee whoredom. For every other sin which a man committeth, is external to his body; but he that committeth whoredom, sinneth against his own body. 19 Or know ye not, that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who abideth in you, whom ye have received from God? And ye are not your own. 20 For ye are bought with a price. Therefore, glorify ye God, with your body, and with your spirit, which are God's.

Acts 5:1-42

1 And a certain man whose name was Ananias, with his wife whose name was Sapphira, sold his field, 2 and carried away part of the price and concealed it, his wife consenting; and he brought a part of the money, and laid it before the feet of the legates. 3 And Simon said to him: Ananias, why hath Satan so filled thy heart, that thou shouldst lie against the Holy Spirit, and conceal of the money of the price of the field? 4 Was it not thine own before it was sold? And when sold, again thou hadst authority over the price of it. Why hast thou set thy heart to do this purpose? Thou hast not lied against men, but against God. 5 And when Ananias heard these words, he fell down, and died. And great fear was upon all them that heard of it. 6 And the young men among them arose, and gathered him up, and carried him out, and buried him. 7 And when three hours had passed, his wife also came in, without knowing what had occurred. 8 Simon said to her: Tell me, if ye sold the field for this price? And she said: Yes, for this price. 9 Simon said to her: Since ye have been equals in tempting the Spirit of the Lord, lo, the feet of the buriers of thy husband are at the door, and they will carry thee out. 10 And immediately she fell before their feet, and died. And those young men came in, and found her dead; and they took up, carried forth, and buried her by the side of her husband. 11 And great fear was on all the assembly, and on all them that heard it. 12 And there were many signs and prodigies wrought by the legates among the people. And they were all assembled together in the porch of Solomon. 13 And of the others, no one ventured to come near them; but the people magnified them. 14 And the more were those added who feared the Lord, a multitude both of men and of women. 15 So that they brought out into the streets the sick, laid on beds, that when Simon should pass, at least his shadow might cover them. 16 And many came to them from other cities around Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those who had unclean spirits; and they were all cured. 17 And the high priest was filled with indignation, and all those with him who were of the doctrine of the Sadducees. 18 And they laid hands on the legates, and took and bound them in prison. 19 Then the angel of the Lord, by night, opened the door of the prison, and let them out; and said to them: 20 Go, stand in the temple, and speak to the people all these words of life. 21 And in the morning, they went and entered into the temple, and taught. And the high priest and those with him, convoked their associates and the Elders of Israel, and sent to the prison to bring forth the legates. 22 And when those sent by them went, they found them not in the prison; and they returned and came back, 23 and said: We found the prison carefully closed, and also the keepers standing before the doors; and we opened, but found no one there. 24 And when the chief priests and rulers of the temple heard these words, they were astonished at them; and they studied what this could mean. 25 And one came and informed them: Those men, whom ye shut up in the prison, lo, they are standing in the temple, and teaching the people. 26 Then went the rulers with attendants, to bring them without violence; for they feared, lest the people should stone them. 27 And when they had brought them, they placed them before the whole council; and the high priest began to say to them: 28 Did we not strictly charge you, to teach no person in this name? And behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine; and ye would bring the blood of this man upon us. 29 And Simon, with the legates, answered and said to them: God is to be obeyed, rather than men. 30 The God of our fathers hath raised up that Jesus, whom ye slew when ye hanged him on a tree. 31 Him hath God established as a head and vivifier; and hath exalted him to his own right hand, so that he might give repentance and remission of sins to Israel. 32 And we are the witnesses of these things; and also the Holy Spirit, whom God giveth to them that believe in him. 33 And when they heard these things, they burned with indignation, and thought of putting them to death. 34 Then rose up one of the Pharisees whose name was Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, and honored by all the people; and he directed them to put the legates aside for a short time. 35 And he said, to them: Men, sons of Israel, take heed to yourselves, and consider what ye ought to do in regard to these men. 36 For before this time, rose up Theudas, and said of himself, that he was some great one; and there went after him about four hundred men. And he was slain; and they who went after him, were dispersed and became as nothing. 37 And after him, rose up Judas a Galilean, in the days when the people were enrolled for the capitation tax; and he seduced much people after him. And he died, and all they that went after him were dispersed. 38 And now, I say to you: Desist from these men, and let them lone. For if this device and this work originate from men, they will dissolve and come to nothing. 39 But if it be from God, it is not in your power to frustrate it: that ye may not be found placing yourselves in opposition to God. And they, assented to him. 40 And they called the legates, and scourged them, and commanded them not to teach in the name of Jesus, and dismissed them. 41 And they went from before them, rejoicing that they were worthy to suffer abuse on account of that name. 42 And they ceased not to teach daily, in the temple and at home, and to preach concerning our Lord Jesus Messiah.

James 1:27

27 For the worship that is pure and holy before God the Father, is this: to visit the fatherless and the widows in their affliction, and that one keep himself unspotted from the world.

24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will honor the one and neglect the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Luke 16:19-31

19 And there was a certain rich man, who was clothed in fine linen and scarlet, and passed every day in splendid luxury. 20 And there was a certain poor man, whose name was Lazarus; and he was laid at the gate of the rich man, smitten with ulcers. 21 And he desired to fill his belly with the fragments that fell from the rich man's table: and the dogs also came and licked his ulcers. 22 And so it was, that the poor man died; and angels transported him to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died, and was buried. 23 And being tormented in hell, he raised his eyes from afar off, and saw Abraham, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he called with a loud voice, and said: Abraham, my father, have pity on me; and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and moisten my tongue; for, lo, I am tormented in this flame. 25 And Abraham said to him: My son, remember, that thou receivedst thy good things in thy lifetime, and Lazarus his evil things: and now, behold he is here at rest, and thou art tormented. 26 And with all these, there is a great barrier between us and you; so that they who would pass from here to you, cannot; neither can they pass from there to us 27 He said to him: I pray thee, therefore, my father, that thou wouldst send him to my father's house; 28 for I have five brothers; that he may go and protest to them; lest they also come to this place of torment. 29 Abraham said to him: They have Moses and the prophets, let them hear them. 30 But he said to him: No, my father Abraham: but if one shall go to them from the dead, they will repent. 31 Abraham said to him: If they hear not Moses and the prophets, they will not believe, though one should rise from the dead.

Matthew 7:21-23

21 Not whoever may say to me, My Lord, my Lord, will enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doeth the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, My Lord, my Lord, have-we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name cast out demons? and in thy name wrought many works of power? 23 And then will I declare to them; I never knew you. Depart from me, ye doers of evil.

Matthew 6:19-21

1 Timothy 6:17-19

17 Charge the rich of this world, that they be not uplifted in their minds; and that they confide not in riches, in which is no security; but in the living God, who giveth us all things abundantly for our comfort: 18 and that they do good works, and be rich in well-doings; and be ready to give and to communicate: 19 and that they lay up for themselves a good foundation for that which is future; that they may take hold of real life.
