  Love Not the World: Winning the War Against Worldliness Paperback – May 1, by Randy Leedy (Author)/5(6). 15 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. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. In this hard-hitting and controversial book, Watchman Nee states that there's a satanic power behind every worldly thing and that the natural tendency of every worldly system such as politics, education, literature, science, art and music is to move away from God and toward Satan. Nee explores how the Christian can live and work in these systems but not be 'of the World.'/5(2). LoveNottheWorld! 1John*17Lovenottheworld,neitherthethingsthatareintheworld.!

Verse 15a: “Do not love the world or the things in the world.” Everything else in the text is an argument, or incentive, for why we should not love the world. Love for the World Pushes Out Love for the Father. The first incentive John gives is that “if anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him” (verse 15b).   When we are told not to love the world, the Bible is referring to the world’s corrupt value system. John Bunyan, in his book The Pilgrim’s Progress, pictures the believer’s position as having “his eyes lift up to heaven,” holding “the best of books” in his hand, and standing with “the world as cast behind him” (p. 34).

“Because all that is in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father, but of the world. And the world is passing away, and all that it craves; but he who does the will of God abides forever” (1 Jn ). In the first chapter of his letter. Love Not the World. by Watchman Nee (CLC) Preface.
