WHY? 

(Horatius Bonar)  

“Do not love the world or anything in the world.” 1 John 2:15 

WHY?

1. Because the gain of it, is the loss of the soul–Matthew 16:25-26. 
  
2. Because its friendship is enmity to God–James 4:4. 
  
3. Because it did not know Christ–John 1:10; 17:25. 
  
4. Because it hates Christ–John 7:7; 15:18. 
  
5. Because the Holy Spirit has forbidden us–1 John 2:15. 
  
6. Because Christ did not pray for it–John 17:9. 
  
7. Because Christ’s people do not belong to it–John 17:16. 
  
8. Because its Prince is Satan–John 13:31; 16:11. 
  
9. Because Christ’s kingdom is not of it–John 18:36. 
  
10. Because its wisdom is foolishness–1 Corinthians 1:20. 
  
11. Because Christ does not belong to it–John 8:23. 
  
12. Because it is condemned–1 Corinthians 11:32. 
  
13. Because it is passing away–1 Corinthians 7:31. 
  
14. Because it slew Christ–James 5:6; Matthew 21:39. 
  
15. Because it is crucified to us–Galatians 6:14. 
  
16. Because we are crucified to it–Galatians 6:14. 
  
17. Because it is the seat of wickedness–2 Peter 1:4; 1 John 5:19. 
  
18. Because its god is the evil one–2 Corinthians 4:4.
