1 John 2:15-17

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 15 Do not love the world or the things that are by the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. [Do not love what the system of the world and man has invented: clothing, food sensations, sports, pleasures, toys, gadgets, customs, traditions, entertainments, pastimes, etc. Use the things of the world as though not absorbed by them and with indifference. 1 Cor 7:31. From the Word of the Lord within: "Everyone should put away what they are doing for the sake of righteousness. You must stand apart from this fast paced world; you can't be in it."]

 16 For everything by the world — the desires of the flesh, the desires of the eye, and the boastful pride of life (or possessions) — is not by the Father, but exists by the world. [For what your flesh and eye desires, and your pride of your life, comes not from the Creator, but comes from the system of the world, ruled by the god of this world, Satan. Whatever you covet is idolatry. Desires (lusts) of the flesh and of the eye are covetousness, which is not even to be named once among true Christians, Eph 5:3,5; and pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Pro 6:18. From the Word of the Lord within: "Pride can be stating how much you paid for something. So repent out of this foolishness."]

 17 And the world passes away and disappears, along with its desires and lusts;3 but he who does the will of God remains forever. [The world passes away from our sight when the Kingdom is entered. From the Word of the Lord within: "The world ends as you step into another dimension. You can live in heaven and still walk the earth."]

 22 Purify your souls by obeying the truth into unfeigned love6 of the brothers, dearly loving one another fervently with a pure heart; [This has been mistranslated as having purified your souls. It is impossible to have purified your soul and still be without salvation; so they have yet to purify their souls. The original Greek Net Bible shows that "purify" in this verse is not past tense, it is present tense; and Footnote 5 in the original Greek Net Bible shows this verse to read "pure heart" in early manuscripts; later manuscripts eliminated the word "pure" to simply read "heart" not "pure heart."]

 23 To be born again, not of corruptible seed but of incorruptible, by the word of God that lives and lasts forever.7 [The Bible does not live and last forever, but Christ, the Word of God, does live and last forever.]

 24  "For all flesh is like grass, and all the glory of man like the flower of the field. The grass withers, and the flower fades away,

 6 The voice said, "Cry." And he said, "What shall I cry? All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the field;

 7 The grass withers and the flower fades; because the spirit of the LORD blows upon it. Surely the people are like grass.
