“Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is an enemy of God” (James 4:4). “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19).
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever” (1 John 2:15–17).
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us” (1 John 4:1-3).
Especially in this present time, we are to be watchful in all things to keep at the forefront of our daily lives the love of the word of God, the love of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; and not the love of this world (Luke 4:4, 11:28).
