LOVE OF THE WORLD?

“Do not love the world nor the things in the world.  If anyone 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 boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.
The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God
lives forever.”  1 John 2: 15-17
(*contemporary culture)
“May we find our joy in Him, not pursuing a life of our own hearts, but a life of His grace
and goodness, and may He keep our hearts fixed on Him and on a crown with Him.”
(J.N. Darby, First Epistle of John)
“They (some believers) want the so called deeper life but they want the world, too…  let
them find out.”  Miles Stanford
