But now I am writing you not to associate with anyone who claims to be a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a verbal abuser, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat. – 1 Corinthians 5:11
Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. – Matthew 7:3-5

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.

When they came to the place called The Skull, they crucified Him there, along with the criminals, one on His right and the other on His left.

The people stood watching, and the rulers sneered at Him. – Luke 23:33-35
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God something to cling to, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross. – Philippians 2:5-8
