The great Illusion dispelled
Locuri din Biblie: 1 John 2, Cuvinte cheie: Worldliness
The name of this greatest of all illusions is—The world. By this, of course, is meant, not the material earth, not the people comprising its population, but the great “world-system” with its supply of every imaginable gratification ... mai multfor human desires, without God. In this fearful and wonderful organization, evolved by the master-mind of Satan, we have all had our share. Its favours fall to the few, its miseries are tasted by the many; but whatever may have been the particular part played, my reader, if unconverted, is inevitably involved in it with the prospect of sharing in its ultimate ruin.
Locuri din Biblie: Hebrews 13
How striking a testimony would be rendered if we were marked by that brotherly love which expresses itself in hospitality and practical sympathy,
by natural love preserved in undefiled honour, and by a holy contentment, the fruit of the realized ... mai multpresence of God, and the very opposite of the mad covetousness and discontent of the world.
