People of GOD the only thing that will last forever is the True word of GOD that we gained through Faith and love for one another till the end of time, followed by judgment on our activities on earth not what we have achieved nor gathered selfishly, so lets look unto OUR LORD JESUS THE TRUTH AND THE WAY TO ETERNITY

All that is in the world : The lust of the flesh : The lust of the eye : The pride of life : Is not of God but is of the world. No profit in gaining the world and losing your soul . Better is a little with the Lord than the treasures of this world. I believe that God allows us to have the comforts of this life only to better serve Him .

Another verse that goes along with it says Godliness with contentment is great gain Psalmist said As the hart panteth after the water brook even doth my soul pant after thee Paul said that l may know HIM another verse says Where your treasure is there will your heart be also Our top priority or treasure should be to treasure the fact that we know and love GOD who is eternal to treasure His Word as one that findeth great spoil and as fine gold This material world is temporary and can not satisfy however much of it you could acquire ITS better to have a little with GOD on BOARD THAN to have a stalled ox and trouble therewith JESUS and your soul are eternal And eternal things can never be satisfied with an temporary fix thats why hollywood and athletes no matter how rich and famous can ever be truly satisfied Hence the drugs alcohol divorce early deaths Truly we should be in pursuit of GOD and not in the temporary things of this passing world thats to be made new

A very wise idea However man needs material comforts in order to cherish his soul if one neglects his health and comforts in his search for heavenly life he will not be able to live his life peacefully Jesus worked to make the world the heaven Not to live in an unrealistic dream of life in heaven

The verse is warning to those willing to do all sorts of evil to satisfy their carnal needs while here on earth, with no thought as to the fact we all have only a limited number of years here on earth, and limitless number of years after death, where everyone would give account of their deeds while here on earth.

Where did we get the bible? The Catholic Church. The Catholic Church held a council in which they decided which books would be a part of the canon, meaning, which books are inspired. Either the Catholic Church's decision was infallible and all the books are inspired, or the Catholic Church's decision was not infallible and therefore the other books can not be trusted as being inspired. There is no pick and choose.

No Earthly gain is worth the value of your Immortal Soul. Love one another and search for the Truth in All Things. Thanks be to God!
