Clearly, this is not an exhortation to lovelessness per se. We are not asked to turn a cold shoulder to everyone and everything. The 'world' is the ego in all its individual, cultural, political, nationalist and racial expressions. It is relentless in its determination to resist and/or subvert God's rule. Unless we learn to love God, the world is irresistible.
The deep evil of which humans are more than capable, lies in this: Not content with open rebellion against their maker, they engage in Machiavellian religion; they pursue their course against God while professing devotion to him. They think to use God for their purposes. But God sees and knows.
Teach us to love you, O God; save us from our futility.
