Overwhelming the AntiChrists (1 John 2:15-29)

Summary: 

John's famous challenge to his readers, "do not love the world or the things in the world," is one of the great calls to turn from idolatry in all the Bible.  But without turning to something, it is an impossible challenge.  What we need, when departing from the "desires of the flesh," the "desires of the eyes," and the "boasting in life," is not the absence of desire, but rather a new affection.
