And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.Romans 12:2 (KJV)
A good portion of the teachings of the New Testament focus on the idea that this world is not to be our focus. As believers, our thoughts are to be on the Kingdom of God above anything that this world throws at us. This world is run by the adversary. We are to stay strong in our faith and be guided by the Holy Spirit.
