Do I Love The World?
1 John 2:15 says, "Do not love the world or the things in the world." And from there it goes on to identify a very dire reality for anyone who does love the world.
But I'm confused... doesn't the most well-known verse of all time tell us that "God so loved the world?" So should we love the world or not love the world?
What is John saying here? What does it mean to not love the world in the way John means it? How do I even know if I do love the world in this way? And what's at stake if I am a lover of the world?
