This exercise is a follow up to the essay on Fallen Agape. First, read these verses:

Do not agape the world nor the things in the world. If anyone agapes the world, the agape of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever. (1 John 2:15-17)
