Elegance, entertainment, and luxurious
(John Angell James, "Christian Hope" 1859)
"For the world offers only the lust for physical pleasure, the
lust for everything we see, and pride in our possessions.
These are not from the Father. They are from this evil
world." 1 John 2:16
The 'spirit of the world' has come into the church!
Elegance, entertainment, and luxurious gratification
are occupying far more than they ought to do, the minds
of professing Christians!
"Therefore, come out from them and separate yourselves
from them, says the Lord. Don't touch their filthy things,
and I will welcome you." 2 Corinthians 6:17
