“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:16-17 NKJV). This Scripture is often misunderstood by sinners, who think since God loves “the world,” and they are in “the world,” then they may already be saved, though they keep their sinful practices! But verse 19 says, “And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (John 3:19 NKJV). “The world” has people who reject Jesus’ “light,” and practice “evil.” God’s Son saves anyone in the world who will repent and come to Him.
