Scripture Verses On Double Mindedness
Scriptures – Double Mindedness
These Scriptures will have some of a little of reference verses, also. A double-minded believer is someone who is constantly living in a state of compromise. Half of you lives for God, while the other half lives for your bad habit. Hence, you are “double-minded.”
“What does it mean to be double-minded (James 1:8; 4:8)?”
Answer: The term double-minded comes from the Greek word dipsuchos, meaning “a person with two minds or souls.” It’s interesting that this word appears only in the book of James (James 1:8; 4:8).
Bible scholars conclude that James might have coined this word. To grasp the full meaning of this word, it is best to understand how it is used within its context.Single-mindedness vs. Double-mindedness
