1 John 5:19 declares: We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.
The Bible also calls the devil the god of this world (age) in 2 Corinthians 4:4. That is why we are commanded in 1 John 2:15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who are able to see with their Spiritual Eyes and hear with their spiritual ears. This world is fallen and we shouldn’t have any desire to cling on to this fallen, sinful world.
