reality--one must go to school, or work to support themselves and their families, have some form of recreation to be balanced--so what is the world Jesus was speaking of?

1) upon his return he will wipe out every govt on earth( Daniel 2:44), so would one vote for them? or kill for them? or run for their offices= No-2Peter 2:19)
2) every encyclopedia( proof of history) says there are pagan additives in the traditions and celebrations of men--would this be apart of the-WORLD--= YES.
3) Hollywood, music, video games--- the 3 top things that=SELL= violence, the occult, immoral sex--- 3 things God hates- Does one support that part of the-WORLD? No --are the things God detests polluting his world= YES.-- the majority of the-WORLD practice these daily-1Cor 6:9-11--Galations 5:19-21.= the world.

So when one is no part of the world--they are way different.

Why else would God be JEALOUS and VENGEFUL if the other Gods were imaginary? There is no reason to be jealous of what does not exist.
Two separate issues.

I used the term "Christianity" to describe those who truly follow Christ as a group and unitedly worship his father.

The OT believers belonged to ...one group, the descendants of Jacobs 12 sons, the Israelite Nation, prior to Christ. The OT does say there is one true religion, the one that God directs through those He had chosen.It was ... worship of Him. No other religion was true.

Now I agree there are other "Gods" as Satan is called very clearly The God of this world and Jehovah God is called the "God if gods" and God can't be a God of non existent or false Gods.

So true, but most people want to be part of the world, it feels good.

What is wrong with feeling good?
Or, is it that misery loves company?

Nothing wrong unless it makes God feel bad. That type of feel good eventually hurts oneself and others. Huge amount of it going on every day.

Yep, that would fit. The problem comes in, in defining the Love Jesus spoke of. Many claim such "agape" love but display a greater love of self and the ungodly practices of this World. Then while Jesus identified those as the two greatest commandments, he did not say they were the only ones. Free Will is what we are given so as to show if we will subordinate it to God's will or elevate our own above His. Takes thought and effort to BE a Christian.

If this is even remotely true, it is because we have surrendered our free will and willingness to LOVE to the modern Pharisees....

REALLY? SERIOUSLY? You want to argue what LOVE is???

Jesus did say that by LOVING GOD and LOVING YOUR NEIGHBOR, we FULFILL all the other laws and commandments.

Which commandment or law can one break when applying LOVE to the situation?
