Jas. 2:8, Howbeit if ye fulfil the royal law, according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself, ye do well: 1 Jno. 3:15, Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.

18 HOW DOES THIS KEEP ONE FROM SINNING? When one is tempted to covet: Lk. 12:15, And he said unto them, Take heed, and keep yourselves from all covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

When one is tempted to sins of the flesh: Eph. 5:3, But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as becometh saints…. 5 For this ye know of a surety, that no fornicator, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. 6 Let no man deceive you with empty words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the sons of disobedience.
