Totally opposite to being in the world but not of the world, ISTM, and of being different to the world!

Thanks, Deejay. I'm not sure I understand what you are saying, but I think I agree.

Thanks, Russ. I like variation, so to do the same subject all the time would get boring for me.

Oh sorry, I was paraphrasing what it says in John's Gospel to make the point, of the two things, followers of Christ and into porn, being incomptible. I don't know the correct verse reference off hand.

Deejay,

Maybe you're referring to this?:

Matthew 6:24
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Luke 16:13
No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Deejay,

Or maybe this is the verse you were referring to:

"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." (James 4:4, KJV)

They are very near, but this is the exact one I was thinking of I think

" 18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. " [John 15:18-19] [KJV]

Ah, OK.
