“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), says: “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon” (Luke 16:13).
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world” (1 John 2:15).
“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19).
“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. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error” (1 John 4:1-8).
“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the [POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 1:19).
