James vs. Obama

The “James” I am referring to is the author of the book by that name in the New Testament, most likely the brother of Jesus. I assume you know who “Obama” is.

James addresses the problem of wars and conflicts in the church, James 4:1-3, among the “brethren,” a term he uses quite often to identify his readers, 1:2, 2:1, 3:, 5:19. James raises the issue of conflicts and identifies the source in James 4:1,

“From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?”
