Here's an excerpt from the Book of Enoch's final chapter, and it's one of my favorite passages:

to those who have suffered in their bodies, but have been rewarded by God; who have been injuriously treated by wicked men; who have loved God; who have been attached neither to gold nor silver, nor to any good thing in the world, but have given their bodies to torment;

24To those who from the period of their birth have not been covetous of earthly riches; but have regarded themselves as a breath passing away.


It's reflective of this passage in James 4

13Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:

14Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

I seriously pity this way of thinking. It is so depressing.

what does make up the attitude of the world?


Whatever Satan wants to use to influence people away from God.

And if I, as well as people around me, absorb the attitude what Satan wants, then doesn't Satan's attitude become what people think?


Sure, you could say that.

So basically only bad things make up the attitude of the world? That's pretty depressing. Why doesn't God have influence over the attitude?

Well, you kind of implied that it was not the case in your previous post when you said the opinion of people does not matter.

If I said yes, would you hold yourself against me?

Oh wait, I messed that one up.

No.

Because he wants nothing to do with it. At Armageddon he'll just get rid of the attitude, and the one(s) spreading it around.

Personally I prefer to think of the world as a much more positive thing than you have made it out to be. Different strokes, folks, etc. I guess.

So wouldn't posting on a message board on a video game website be considered a worldly thing?

I dunno. Is this drawing me away from God?
