St. James: Where do the wars among you come from?

Anti-war essays, poems, short stories and literary excerpts

From the Epistle of St. James

Where do the wars and where do the conflicts among you come from? Is it not from your passions that make war within your members?

You covet but do not possess. You kill and envy but you cannot obtain; you fight and wage war. You do not possess because you do not ask.

You ask but do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.
