Jm. 4:4 TPB Don't you know that flirting with the world's values places you at odds with God? Whoever chooses to be the world's friend makes himself God's enemy. The "world's values" refers to the mind-set, philosophies of life, and priorities that run contrary to the will and ways of God. The world says that success in life requires you to ignore or turn away from a relationship with God. But, true life is only found in our relationship with God. The only way to combat the pull of this world's system and values is to renew or transform our minds with the Word of God. Through the Holy Spirit's power, our minds are renewed and we gain overcoming victory over the world.
