Too many Christians claim the opposite, that 'we are not of this world', yet HERE WE ARE! Right here, in THIS world, the world God made and put us in.'

There is no written record of anything Jesus said in his lifetime - none.
All you have to go on is what people who didn't know Jesus believe he said, or what they heard about what he said.
Jesus wrote nothing while he lived, nor did he direct his apostles or disciples to record his words or his deeds. He merely told them to bear witness and spread the good news, which they did orally.
The New Testament accounts of the teachings of Jesus are second- third- and fourth-hand accounts.
So neither you nor anyone else is or can be an authority on what Jesus said.
Claiming that someone lied about what Jesus actually said is therefore intellectually dishonest and personally disingenuous.
And moot, to boot.
Yet, you are here, searching for something more. If you had the truth, you would not be here fighting with Christians. You would not bother to give us the time of day.

A series of scriptures will highlight the world's danger to us. The apostle James writes: "Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God" (James 4:4). This epistle is written to a Christian congregation. Even as the Old Testament shows Israel to be a spiritual adulteress to God through the people's disobedience following the making of the Old Covenant, so are Christians—as part of the bride of Christ, having made the New Covenant—spiritual adulterers when they unfaithfully disobey.The apostle uses the word philos, indicating something dear, which the New King James Version translates as "friend." He is stressing an affectionate, emotional attachment. Interestingly, The New Testament in Modern English by J.B. Phillips (1959) renders the warning as, "You are like unfaithful wives, flirting with the glamour of this world, and never realizing that to be the world's lover means becoming the enemy of God!" Seen this way, James describes them as silly, immature children, thoughtlessly gambling away their futures in the Kingdom of God.

I John 2:15 adds a refinement to James' warning: "Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him." The Greek word translated as "love" is

Nope.
That scripture clearly states that God loves the world.

And:
1 John 4:9-12

By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has beheld God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us.

Romans 5:8

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

And, don't ever forget:
John 1:10 ESV

He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him.

Yes, but as Christians, we are to keep ourselves separated from the ways of the world system, which God views as corrupt and under the leadership of Satan.

And again, you stick your head in the sand when it comes to the prophecies of Holy Scripture. Jesus warned of this wrath coming. Obviously, you do not want to accept the realities of God's displeasure at us as His creations.

Absolutely. And if those in this world do not go through Jesus Christ and His plan of salvation, they will not be spared the unmeasured wrath of the Lord against sin. He ejected Lucifer from Heaven for one sin. Lucifer will eventually be cast into the Lake of Fire. Why would we be spared this fate?

to ‘love human beings in a human way’, to love them not for what they may promise me, to love them not as if they were there to provide me with lasting safety and comfort, but as fragile fellow-creatures held in the love of God. I discover how to see other persons and things for what they are in relation to God, not to me.......

The human face that Christians want to show to the world is a face marked by justice and love.........
If Evangelization is a matter of showing the world the ‘unveiled’ human face that reflects the face of the Son turned towards the Father, it must carry with it a serious commitment to promoting and nurturing such prayer and practice.......
the more we keep apart from each other as Christians of different confessions, the less convincing that face will seem......

My point is you can continue your life thinking you are a perfect christian, and find yourself with a lovely table next to the boiler room in Hell. While I am living a life the way we are taught, manners, respect, consideration, charity, everything but organized religion, then on my death bed call out for forgiveness and eexcept the Lord. Poof, there I am sitting next to Jesus for alll eternity looking at you suffering. Hell is full of pious, sanctimonius frauds.

Inclusivism says that Christ will finally save some people who never had a knowledge of Him during their lifetimes, hence the term 'Inclusivism' because Christ is able to include people.

Jesus made the most encouraging comment,'All things are possible with God'- there is a Judgment Day to come when many will find that the grace of God had come to them during their lives which had led to them doing good works (not the other way around), even though they did not know Jesus! Matthew 25:31-46 is a beautiful parable because it is a picture of people being told on Judgment Day that the good works they had done during their lives were done through the very grace of God - but there is astonishment among these people because they know little or nothing about 'The King'(Jesus). Maybe they had expected condemnation but now richly discover the overiding mercy of God.

Again, you quote from a book that has little basis in reality.
But since you did I'll ask again: why, if God has allocated certain lands for the Hebrews, did he allow other people to settle there?
What kind of God allows people to settle somewhere and prosper, then tells them later on that the land was never there's to begin with, and all their males (and all females who aren't virgins) have to die?
What good does killing all the males do anyway? The virgin females are the ethnicity as the males, so eliminating a bloodline isn't a good reason.
I know why - because the books of the Bible were written by men who treated women as property, not by a God who loved his entire creation.
You got a question for God ..you go and ask him..

"God loved the world so much"..is only part of the quote...you didn't finish it..and you forgot the responsibility the recipient has..

Let me finish it for you

" He sent his only begotten son , the WHOSOEVER EXERCISES FAITH in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life'

So there is a responsibility of response for what God has done in his love..and that is active FAITH in his means of saving ...Jesus Christ.

Without faith it is impossible to please him.

I believe you have nailed it...They want us to prove God exists for them...but that is not our job...

Reading scripture we are to preach the WORD..but it is God who opens the ears to hear..encouragement in the Lord.

It also appears that the baptism of the Holy Spirit , is necessary for the power to witness to Christ...how do you go on that ??
