Who therefore loves the world and its pleasures, who strives after matter and only lives for the gaining of it, he belongs to the opponent of God and also grants him the power over himself. Read more:

World love - Satanís followers. God love - Overcomers of matter.

11. January 1951. B.D. NR. 5039.

Only that man leads a spiritual life, who longs for God, while the follower of Satan lives a pure worldly life on this earth, even so he is an apparent representative of God. Overcoming the world also means overcoming Satan, who is lord of the material world insofar, as the immature spiritual still belongs to him, which is bound in matter, although the power over the spiritual is withdrawn from him. It is certainly still his share, because it is of equal spirit, but not accessible to his influence, as long as it is bound in form. Nevertheless it is a means, to pull men over to him Ė the spiritual, which stands in the decision between God and him. Because man, as initially immature spiritual, longs for that, what the world puts in front of his eyes. But he is to overcome it. Then he belongs to the father from eternity, but whose kingdom is spiritual. Who therefore loves the world and its pleasures, who strives after matter and only lives for the gaining of it, he belongs to the opponent of God and also grants him the power over himself. But who longs for God, him the world no longer attracts; he has overcome the world, otherwise the desire for God would not have awakened in him. Consequently the turning away from the world is also a sign of the belonging to God, striven for in free will. Satan entices with the world and has therefore a means of attracting, to which most men become a slave, because they love the world. World love and God-love together is not possible, and world love and neighbourly love will also be found together only rarely or latter already means a decrease of the former, and thereon you recognize the followers of God and the followers of the opponent of God. And man will also not find inner peace so long, the peace of the soul, as he pays attention to the goods of the world, as he still desires them. Because the peace of the soul comes out of God, and God is only with him, who shows the back to the world. Man is indeed put into the world and must meet his earth task, and that also forces him to keep in touch with the world. But it is about the desire of the heart; it is about the most inner convictions towards the treasures of the world, which will completely fade their sparkle, so the striving for the spiritual kingdom and its treasures fill man. Then he certainly stands likewise in the world, but only to fulfil those duties, which earthly life imposes on him. But the world no longer attracts him, and that is a sign that he has overcome the world and consequently also its lord; that he has broken away from the opponent of God, to be able to establish the connection with God. No man can serve two masters, and which lord man serves, is clearly apparent with his desire. The earthly world and the spiritual kingdom are so far apart that one can certainly differentiate, after which the heart of man longs. And Satan can never rule in a man, of which God has already taken possession through his will. Amen. B.D. NR. 5039.
