Do you love the WORLD more than GOD? God DOESN’T like compromisers & He doesn’t want you to LOOK, ACT, or have ANYTHING to do with the WORLD!
You’re a royal priesthood, a holy nation, set aside. A separated, called-out, peculiar people, with actions, habits & ways that are altogether different.
CHRISTIANS SHOULDN’T LOOK or ACT LIKE THE WORLD!
Paul told Christians not to LOOK like the world & he spoke against BRAIDS because that’s how PROSTITUTES did their hair in Bible days.
Christ is kicked OUT & worldliness comes in when you begin to ACT & LOOK like the world.
If you look like the world, you’re feeding on rotting roadkill, LIKE A VULTURE.
A Christian looks DIFFERENT than what’s in fashion. Dress & fix your hair in a way that DOESN’T LOOK LIKE THE WORLD!

W M B ~ Notice, a braided hair in that day was the sign of a street woman; that’s what she done, braided her hair.
And Paul said to the Christians, “Now, that adorning, not let it be of a braided…” (or “broided” and “braid” is the same thing) to braid their hair, BECAUSE IT LOOKED LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD.
Now, you’re supposed NOT TO LOOK LIKE THE WORLD OR ACT LIKE THE WORLD! See?
The women are supposed to BE DIFFERENT there. See?
No, now, braiding hair…Now, today BRAIDED HAIR IS PRETTY, AND IT’S A LONG WAYS FROM THE FASHION OF THE WORLD.
Now, you see the women, the way they do their hair today…
Just keep your hair in any way; JUST DON’T LOOK LIKE THE WORLD! See? Don’t look or dress like it!

W M B ~ Long years ago, talking about character…They’re usually getting after me about how I beat down the—the character of the church, should be revolutionized and brought up again.
Because I know when the church begins to LOSE ITS CHARACTERISTICS, its character is gone with its characteristic, it goes down.
When its character goes, the characteristics goes with it, because when they begin to ACT LIKE THE WORLD, and LOOK LIKE THE WORLD, and ASSOCIATE WITH THE WORLD, Christ goes out, and the world comes in.

W M B ~ Now, but these people in the days of Samuel the prophet, they WANTED TO ACT LIKE THE PHILISTINES, and the AMALEKITES, and THE UNBELIEVING.
And they, because that THEY SEEN THEIR PEOPLE WAS A LITTLE MORE FANCY …And they were a nation of called-out and chosen people, AND THEY’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO ACT LIKE THE REST OF THE PEOPLE.
God’s people is never to act like the world, or look like the world, or be anything to do with the world.
You are a separated people, the church, a called-out, a peculiar people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, altogether different and set aside, and all your actions, and habits, and ways from the things of the world.

W M B ~ Notice, CHURCH IS SO CARNAL, FEEDS ITSELF ON WORLDLY A CARRION, DEAD THINGS OF THE WORLD, just LIKE THE VULTURE does.
CHURCH POLITICS, they don’t let the Holy Ghost send a man to a church; THEY HAVE TO HAVE A POLITICS and see if the denomination is going to receive him or not.
That’s right. They’re LIKE THE WORLD.
They DRESS LIKE THE WORLD.
They LOOK LIKE THE WORLD.
They ACT LIKE THE WORLD.
THEY’RE VULTURES, LIKE THE WORLD.
They are LAZY, SOFT, COMPROMISERS. That’s all there is to it.
Did you ever see an eagle compromise? No, sir.
There is no compromising in him. Neither does a genuine Christian. HE AIN’T SOFT. He’ll hunt till he finds It. Amen. Yes, sir. HE’LL FIND HIS MEAT.
He wants FRESH MANNA. He’ll get down there and dig till he finds It. He’ll fly higher and higher. If there’s none in this valley, he’ll raise a little higher. The higher you go, the more you can see.
So it’s time for eagles of this day to GET TO FLYING HIGHER, DIG INTO GOD’S PROMISES, not live on VULTURE FOOD that’s been KILLED YEARS AGO; get out of it.

W M B ~ What’d you do? LOST THEIR FIRST LOVE.
Oh, you couldn’t get them on a corner with a tambourine to clap their hands and praise God.
Oh, no! They’d sing some kind of classical something WITH A BUNCH OF ROBES around them.
See, THEY LOST THEIR FIRST LOVE. That’s what’s the matter with the first church. See?
They just have to ACT LIKE THE WORLD.
They have to DRESS LIKE THE WORLD,
LOOK LIKE THE WORLD,
ACT LIKE THE WORLD.
And have their favorite television star, you know, they just can’t keep from seeing it. We Love Susie or something another, you know, they just have to see it.
They’ll stay home from prayer meeting and everything else to see it.
If they don’t, they give their pastor a good bawling out, to let them out in time till that program comes on so they can get home to see it.
THE LOVE OF THE WORLD MORE THAN THE LOVE OF GOD!
