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."]

James 4:4
