Live by the Spirit and you will not gratify the flesh, for the flesh has desires against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh.  The works of the flesh are orgy, hatred, rivalry, factions, sorcery, jealousy,  immorality, impurity, idolatry, dissensions, licentiousness,  outbursts of fury, acts of selfishness, occasions of envy, drinking bouts, and the like. Who gratifies the flesh will not inherit the kingdom of God.  The fruits of the Spirit are joy, love,  peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  Who  belongs to Christ crucifies his flesh with its passions and desires.  Who follows the Spirit is humble, peaceful and generous.  (edited Galatians 5:13-26)
