Philippians 3:17 -- "Brethern, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us."

1 John 2:15 - Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Someone said, "You can look, but don't touch." This is bad advice. There is much visual distraction today. It's easy to be lured away into worldly thinking and be deceived by the enemy by (continually) looking at something that is beneath a Christian's…Continue
