If anyone loves the world

(J. C. Philpot, "Evidences Sealed and Open" 1869)

"Do not love the world or anything in the world.
 If anyone loves the world, the love of the
 Father is not in him."  1 John 2:15

If the love of the Father is in us, we will not
love the world--nor will the world love us!

If your heart and spirit are still in the world,
and you are not separated from . . .
  its society,
  its amusements,
  its pursuits,
  its pleasures,
  its delights,
  its men,
  its maxims,
you certainly lack any evidence of a divine
change having been wrought in your soul.

"Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the
becomes an enemy of God." James 4:4
