Contrasting post:  Things That Don’t Go Together

Here are words that usually go with each other.  To say that the terms “go together” does not mean that they are necessarily synonymous.  They may merely complement each other (e.g. “word or deed” in Colossians 3:17).  They may even represent the diverse parts of a whole (e.g. “spirit and soul and body” in 1 Thessalonians 5:23).  Minimally, the presence of one idea has something to do with the presence of the other(s).

I have tried to isolate Good Things That Go Together and Evil Things That Go Together in separate posts, leaving this post to list things that could be either good or evil, or to which the good or evil distinction cannot be easily applied.
