The War's Within
What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this that your passions are at war within you?—James 4:1
Quarrels and fights are external expressions of something that happens within a man. And these expressions do have certain ramifications. But the root issue is the uncontrolled passion within a man. It's the war we fight within ourselves with our desires. We desire to do good but that there is another desire as well—a desire to do bad. This is born from a vengeful spirit resulting from sin and injustice that become violent toward others. And the cycle repeats unless by the Spirit we call an end to the war within and thus end the war without.
