Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.
If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
1 John 2:15
"A moralist will be unsuccessful in trying to displace his love of the world by reviewing the ills of the world. Misplaced affections need to be replaced by the far greater power of the affection of the gospel."
