“Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” 1Jn 2:15
Adam started his journey on the wrong foot and this world has not been the same. He was given ample evidence to know whose presence he was in, the creator of this world who shared ample truth with him daily to know what the difference was between right and wrong. John points out the amazing truth clear from the beginning had Adam made the right decision concerning who his leader would be and who he would adore and obey. His love went fowl at the start with its focus. The very purpose of man's creation was to glorify God by worshipping Him voluntarily in conscious rejection of sinful alternatives.
