Biblical position in regard to this world

  Q. What does the Bible have to say about this world that we 
   live in? 

  A. According to the Bible Satan rules this world.  His values, 
   attitudes and outlooks pervade and prevail here.  This world is 
   evil.  Its attitudes, values and ways are the ways of the 
   Prince of Evil.  The masses of this world follow Satan as their 
   shepherd.  The Christian must turn away from the values, 
   attitudes and ways of this world and turn to the values, 
   attitudes and ways of Righteousness, Goodness and Virtue (i.e. 
   he must turn to God and his ways). 

   "You 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 

   "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.  
   If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in 
   him.  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the 
   lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, 
   but is of the world.  And the world passes away, and the lust 
   thereof:  but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever."  
   I John 2:15-17 

   "be not conformed to this world:  but be ye transformed by the 
   renewing of your mind."  Rom 12:2 

   "this world is crucified unto me and I unto the world"  Gal 

   "In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them 
   which believe not"  II Cor 4:4 

   "who gave himself for our sins that he might deliver us from 
   this present evil world"  Gal 1:4
