“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him, because all that is in the world (the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the arrogance produced by material possessions) is not from the Father, but is from the world.”
1 John 2.15-16
Christians must walk as Jesus did. They must love one another. They must be assured of their salvation. They must reject false teaching. The world and all it contains are opposed to the Father.
Love means commitment to, involvement in, support of the world. How do we show our rejection of the world and our commitment to God?
