Love not the world, nor those things which are in the world.
What is it, my brethren, that is so Often pointed at and condemned in the Gospel, under the name Of the world? Our Divine Redeemer informs His apostles, that the Spirit Of Truth, whom He would send down upon them, could not be known by the world; (john, xiv. 17) that the peace which He bestowed upon them was not that which it bestowed. He forewarns them that the world would hate them as it had first hated Him, (xv. 18) and the prophets before them; (xvii. 14) that it had not even known His eternal Father: (25) and He couse quently excludes it from the pathetic prayer which He makes for His apostles. They, in their turn, were no less careful to caution their followers against the same opposition between their doctrine and the world. St. Paul makes them re?ect that it is not the spirit of the world which they have received in Christianity, (1 Cor. Ii. 12) that its wisdom is only folly in the eyes Of God; (iii. 19) and that his great study was to crucify.
