1 John 2:12-17 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
Reasons for writing
12 I am writing to you, dear children,
14 I write to you, dear children,
On not loving the world
15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father[a] is not in them. 16 For everything in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives for ever.
