You adulterers! Don’t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God.
There are some pretty cool things out there, like the newest smartphones, laptops, cars, flat screens… But if we get caught up in these so-called “status symbols”, we’re endangering our very lives. Falling in love with the world is dangerous and interferes with our love of God. It’s a form of idol worship that has corrupted many lives.
