1 John 2:15-17
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
"If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own.

And walk among them.
I will be their God,
And they shall be My people."
Therefore "Come out from among them
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean,
And I will receive you."
