Do Not Love the World

15 Do not love 1the world nor the things in the world. 2If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, 3the lust of the flesh and 4the lust of the eyes and 5the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 6The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who 7does the will of God lives forever. 18 Children, 8it is the last hour; and just as you heard that 9antichrist is coming, 10even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour. 19 11They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, 12so that ait would be shown that they all are not of us. 20 bBut you have an 13anointing from 14the Holy One, and 15you all know. 21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but 16because you do know it, and cbecause no lie is 17of the truth. 22 Who is the liar but 18the one who denies that Jesus is the dChrist? This is 19the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. 23 20Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also. 24 As for you, let that abide in you which you heard 21from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also 22will abide in the Son and in the Father.
