Nathaniel Vincent (1639-1697) was a nonconformist puritan divine. His colleagues called him “smart…brisk and well-rounded as a minister of the Gospel, holding a facetious and jolly humor, as well as being a considerable scholar.”

We often underestimate great dangers, making them more challenging to avoid. Many acknowledge sin’s evil and Satan’s enmity, yet fail to see the perilous nature of the world, as depicted in Holy Scripture. Deliverance from this present evil world is as crucial to our salvation as rescue from darkness and sin. A cosmic war rages between heaven and hell, with evil forces striving to corrupt humanity, intensifying rebellion against God. The world, in alliance with hell, wields earthly pleasures as weapons in this conflict, luring Christians away from godly pursuits.

How many have been spiritually wounded or defiled by worldly allurements, rendered unfit for God’s service and His kingdom? This treatise by Vincent was originally a series of sermons that covered 1 John 2:15, “Love not the world.” Vincent then updated these sermons and turned them into tract form in order to publish this work at the request of the hearers who needed to be reminded to study this vital doctrine. Vincent covers 1) defining “the world,” 2) “what the love of the world” is, 3) how Christians may love the world and how they ought not, 4) various words of caution and application, as well as exhorting those who do love the world to see their sin, and 5) various remedies against such sin. He also encourages believers to be steadfast in loving God more than they would or could love the world.
