I have always wondered exactly what I John means when he talks about all that is in the world. Here is the list.
The lust of the flesh
The lust of the eyes
The pride of life
I did an interesting comparison today with the passage in Genesis that talks about the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Here is what Eve saw:
The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil
Good for food
Pleasant to the eyes
Desirable to make one wise
Comparing Scripture with Scripture sure does make it come alive!
