2 and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins ; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.

Do Not Love the World

15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 The world is passing away, and also its lusts ; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.

Children of God Love One Another

1 See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God ; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 13 Do not be surprised, brethren, if the world hates you. 17 But whoever has the world's goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?

Testing the Spirits

1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God ; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world. 4 You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. 5 They are from the world ; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them. 9 By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. 14 We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. 17 By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment ; because as He is, so also are we in this world. 4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world ; and this is the victory that has overcome the world -our faith. 5 Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God ? 19 We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
