1 John 2:16

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 16 For everything by the world — the desires of the flesh, the desires of the eye, and the boastful pride of life (or possessions) — is not by the Father, but exists by the world. [For what your flesh and eye desires, and your pride of your life, comes not from the Creator, but comes from the system of the world, ruled by the god of this world, Satan. Whatever you covet is idolatry. Desires (lusts) of the flesh and of the eye are covetousness, which is not even to be named once among true Christians, Eph 5:3,5; and pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Pro 6:18. From the Word of the Lord within: "Pride can be stating how much you paid for something. So repent out of this foolishness."]
