To be friends of the world is to be an enemy of God

Now we are told within the Bible to reprove, rebuke and exhort with use of and for the Bible (2 Timothy 4:1-5). Now I say this because there are those that call themselves “Christian” and have befriended the world. A prime example is one of the Republican Party candidates that used the adage of “love the sinner hate the sin,” but also said he attended his homosexual friend’s wedding. This person has befriended the world and so has turned his back upon God.
If he truly placed God first he would have told that friend in love that pursuing this relationship to the point of marriage is a sin to God and he should seriously rethink that relationship. This is not what was done though. He has embraced the world and his friend and in so doing he has turned his back upon God.
James 4: 4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
