James 3:15-16 King James Version (KJV) 15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. James 3:15-16 New Life Version (NLV) 15 This is not the kind of wisdom that comes from God. But this wisdom comes from the world and from that which is not Christian and from the devil. 16 Wherever you find jealousy and fighting, there will be trouble and every other kind of wrong-doing. New Life Version (NLV) Copyright © 1969 by Christian Literature International These are my thoughts, please share yours. 15 The world does have something but without the Lord being in something it’s corrupted. Without God everything is tainted. We want wisdom that comes from God. True wisdom leads us further to God and is in submission to Him. The devil is sly and a tricker many think they are following God but aren’t wise enough to see the devil leading them. 16 Jealousy and selfishness to evil of this world both of these are internal sins but they come out thru more sin. The devil wants to confuse people about what sin is. Man’s views of what sin is has changed but we should hold to God’s standard because His standards are true and never changing.
