Context Readings

Do Not Love The World

14 I wrote to you, fathers, because ye have known Him Who is from the beginning. I wrote to you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and ye have conquered the evil one. 15 Love not the world, nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him; 16 because all that is in the world??he desire of the flesh, the desire of the eyes, and the vain-glory of life??s not of the Father, but is of the world.
