Religion that God our Father accepts
As Pure and Faultless is this:
TO LOOK AFTER ORPHANS AND WIDOWS
IN THEIR DISTRESS
AND TO KEEP ONESELF FROM BEING POLLUTED BY THE WORLD.
What Motivates the World? Listen:
For all that is in the World,
The Lust of the Flesh
[Craving for Sensual Gratification],
And the Lust of they Eyes
[Greedy longings of the mind]
And the Pride of life
[Assurance of one's own resources
Or the Stability of Earthly things]
These do not come from the Father
But are from the World [itself].
AND THE WORLD PASSES AWAY AND DISAPPEARS,
With it the Forbidden Cravings
(The Passionate Desires, the Lust) of it;
But he who does the Will of God
And carries out His Purposes in his life,
ABIDES (REMAINS) FOREVER.
(1 John 2:16, 17, AMP)
