John Piper in his sermon on 2 Timothy 4:9-12 entitled “He Stood By Me and Strengthened Me for the Sake of the Gospel” warns young, culture-embracing evangelicals that “there is a love for the world that makes ministry impossible.”

  1. The need for separation from the culture, love of and god of this world is taught frequently in Scripture. Looking under the subjects “world” and “separate” or “separation” in a Bible concordance offers a starting point for study.

    “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of Gd abides forever”
                              —-I John 2:15-17, New Kings James Version
