for whereas
1 Corinthians 1:11
For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
1 Corinthians 6:1-8
1
Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?
2
Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
3
Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
4
If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
5
I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
6
But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.
7
Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?
8
Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults:
Galatians 5:15
But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
Galatians 5:19-21
19
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
James 3:16
For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
James 4:1
From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
James 4:2
Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
and walk

But they like men have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against me.

That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
23
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
24
And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
