“You should know that loving the world is the same as hating God. Anyone, who wants to be a friend of the world becomes God’s enemy (James 4:4)

Do not love the world or the things in the world. IF you love the world, the love of the Father is not in you. These are the ways of the world: wanting to please our sinful selves, wanting the sinful things we see, and being too proud of what we have. None of these come from the Father, but all of them come from the world. The world and everything that people want in it are passing away, but the person who does what God wants to live’s forever. (1 John 2:15-17)
