New International Version
Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.

“In so far as anyone indulges in the lusts of the flesh, they are a beast and a wild animal; but so far as they take delight in the desires of the spirit, they are a human being and an angel.”
