One of my classes in Bible college had an assignment that required the memorization for the word “world” and here it is: The world is all that floating mass of thought, opinion, maxim, speculation, hopes, impulses, aims, and aspirations which are, at any one time, current in the world. It is impossible to grasp and accurately define that floating mass, but it would constitute a real and most effective power, creating a moral or immoral atmosphere which we inhale every day and exhale every day.

Every human being by nature is influenced by the atmosphere in which he lives. So, what does the Bible say about the world?


1 John 2:15 

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 5:19 

We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.

2 Corinthians 4:4 

In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

Give it some thought.
