Ephesians 4:32

32 and be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you.

James 2:1-26

1 My brethren, do not hold the faith of our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, so as to show a partiality for persons. 2 For if there comes into your assembly a man in splendid apparel, and with gold rings on his fingers, and there comes in also a poor man, in mean clothing, 3 and you show regard to him that wears the splendid apparel, and say to him, Sit here, in an honorable place; and you say to the poor man, Do you stand there, or sit here, under my footstool; 4 are you not partial in yourselves? and do you not judge from false principles? 5 Hear, my be loved brethren: Has not God chosen the poor of this world, rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which God has promised to those who love him? 6 But you dishonor the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you, and do they not themselves drag you to the judgment-seats? 7 Do they not themselves revile that honorable name which is called upon you? 8 If, however, you fulfill the law of highest excellence, according to the scripture, You shall love your neighbor as yourself, you do well. 9 But if you show partiality for persons, you work sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors. 10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet fail in one, is an offender against all. 11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now, though you do not commit adultery, yet, if you kill, you are a transgresssor of law. 12 So speak, and so act, as those who shall be judged by the law of liberty. 13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, who has shown no mercy. Mercy glories over judgment. 14 What profit is there, my brethren, if any one say he has faith, and have not works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 and any of you say to them, Go in peace, be warmed and be filled, and yet give them not the things that are needful for the body, what does this profit them? 17 So, also, faith, if it has not works, is dead, being by itself. 18 But some one will say, You have faith, and I have works; show me your faith by your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that there is one God; you do well: the demons also believe, and tremble. 20 But will you know, vain man, that faith without works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was the moving principle in his works, and by works his faith was made perfect? 23 And the scripture was fulfilled, which says, Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness: and he was called the friend of God. 24 Do you see that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only? 25 Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and sent them out another way? 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Titus 1:12-13

12 One of themselves, a prophet of their own, has said: The Cretans are always liars, evil wild beasts, lazy gluttons. 13 This testimony is true; wherefore rebuke them severely, that they may be sound in the faith,

Galatians 3:28

28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bondman nor free man, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
