Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 30 And those who weep, as though they did not weep; and those who rejoice, as though they did not rejoice; and those who buy, as though they did not possess;

 31 And those who use this world, as though not absorbed by it and with indifference; for the present form of this world passes away.5 [You are to be in the world but not of the world. From the Word of the Lord within: "Stand apart from this fast paced world; you can't be in it." Friendship with the world, (and people of the world), is enmity with God. James 4:4. When you enter the Kingdom, the world passes away to your sight and consciousness.]

1 John 2:15

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 have 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."]
