Some Try to Shift the Focus of the Scriptures to the Church (where they are not) and Away from the World (where they are)

If you listen to some so called true believers, they're quick to see God's judgment on the church in every verse. And it is true God has judged the churches. But even in numerous Scriptures where the focus is on God judging the world, they still see those verses as also judgments on the churches. Everything is always the churches, the churches.

What about the world's guilt and its judgment? If you listen to them, you would think God has forgotten about the world and focuses only on the corporate church.

No, He hasn't forgotten the world at all. The Lord is actively judging the world at this time. But some refuse to acknowledge even the possibility of such a thing taking place. They protect the world. They try to shift the focus of the Scriptures to the church (where they are not), and away from the world (where they are). We have to wonder have they forgotten God's warning about loving this world?

1 John 2:15 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.

16 For all that is 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.

17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
