Love of the World Day One - Andrew Fuller

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (1 John 2:15 ESV)


It has long appeared to me that this species of covetousness will, in all probability, prove the eternal overthrow of more characters among professing people, than almost any other sin; and this because it is almost the only sin which may be indulged, and a profession of religion at the same time supported.

If a man be a drunkard, a fornicator, and adulterer, or a liar; if he rob his neighbor, oppress the poor, or deal unjustly, he must give up his pretenses to religion; or if not, his religious connections, if they are worthy of being so denominated, will give him up: but he may love the world, and the things of the world, and at the same time retain his character.
