This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. Ephesians 4:17-19
past feeling = desensitized, hardened of heart
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
In an 1882 edition of “Zion’s Watchtower”, Charles Taze Russell tells about how he was reading the Revised Version, and he thought, Oh, the scholars say that 1 John 5:7 doesn’t belong. See, I always thought that Jesus Christ wasn’t God. This led to the creation of the Jehovah Witnesses.
We are to be united by a common authority, not by compromise. By God’s words not by vain philosophies, traditions of men and doctrines of devils.

John 4:3-43 – account of Jesus and the Samaritan woman at the well
Disciples had gone to nearby city of Sychar to get food (v8).
Jesus had sent the disciples to reap (v38), but the disciples were only thinking of food to feed their bodies (v33) and did not see the opportunity. The people of the city were ripe unto harvest (v35).
Jesus spoke of a spiritual food: “Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work” (v34)
Pope to Catholics in Morocco: Your mission is not conversion
Pope Francis told Morocco’s tiny Catholic community on Sunday their role in the predominantly Muslim country was not to covert their neighbors but live in brotherhood with all other faiths. Francis has used his two-day trip to stress inter-faith dialog. He has also backed Moroccan King Mohammed VI’s efforts to spread a form of Islam that promotes inter-religious dialog and rejects violence in God’s name
We confess our sins to God.
We confess faults to one another.
James 5:16 KJB Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Vatican approved Alexandrian based new age bibles say “sins” in James 6:15 to justify confession to priests.
If your bible says to confess your sins to one another in James 5:16, throw it away and get a King James Bible.
