For many, as I have often told you and now tell you
even in tears, conduct themselves as enemies of the
cross of Christ. Their end is destruction. Their God is
their stomach; their glory is in their "shame."
minds are occupied with earthly things.
For they (the Pharisees) preferred human praise to
the glory of God.
Adulterers! Do you not know that to be a lover of the
world means enmity with God? Therefore, whoever
wants to be a lover of the world makes himself an
enemy of God.
