To love life in this world is to love wickedness:
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12). “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil” (Romans 13:3).
“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God” (Psalm 9:17).
“Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth [RIGHTEOUSNESS]” (2 Peter 3:13).
To LOVE RIGHTEOUSNESS is to LOVE GOD:
“The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness” (Jeremiah 4:2).
The righteous will flourish as the palm tree (Psalm 92:12).
When time ends, “Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven” (Psalm 85:11).
“The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be forever” (Psalm 37:18).
