Having loved this Present world…

The final words of most great men are often worth remembering. So it is worth examining a passage in the final words of the Chosen Vessel. In the Chosen Vessel’s second epistle to Timothy, we read: “For Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world…”(2 Tim. 4:10). What does it mean to love this present world, and who or what would have caused Demas to forsake Paul?

To answer these questions we have to examine some very pertinant, biblical texts. The Apostle John was inspired to write: "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father in not in him(1 John 2:15). Now, it should be evident that God is not saying, people should not love the beauty of nature, For the text goes on to say: "For all that are in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world"(1 John 2:16). The phrase, "is of the world," means is of Satan, who is the god of this world.

So when Demas forsake Paul he was leaving God to follow the devil. Of course, Demas in not alone, for many former members of The Worldwide Church of God, who love this present world, have forsaken the wholesome teachings of the bible to embraced the doctrines of Satan. For example, the leaders and ministers/hirelings of UCG, LCG, PCG, RCG and COG/Hulme have also forsaken Paul, because they love this present world.
