” adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. ” James 4:4

Most people don’t like to read this kind of scripture, it’s the kind you skip over or you try to interpret another way to justify your life style. Also in 1 John 2:15, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” The Bible speaks over and over how we are not of this world that we are foreigners and strangers to this world. We have to protect ourselves from the things of the world. Even our churches are in the world. One of the Ten Commandments is not to covet, but our small churches covet the large churches and go into the world to borrow money which our Bible says that we are suppose to owe no man anything. They are in direct defiance of God and wonder why they are not being blessed. We have to keep our eyes on Jesus and do His will not ours. He takes care of our needs. Our wants take us away from Him.”
