James 4:1 - What causes fights and quarrels among you?

NIV What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you?
KJV From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
NASB What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members?
James 4:1


The conflict within us is between our sinful desires for pleasure and the desire for God's will, an attitude the Holy Spirit has placed within us (v. 5).
