    Worldliness quotes by:    

You and I have need of the strongest spell that can be found to wake us from the evil enchantment of worldliness.

The dangers of apparent self-sufficiency explain why Our Lord regards the vices of the feckless and dissipated so much more leniently than the vices that lead to worldly success.

Worldly pleasures, such as flow from greatness, riches, honours, and sensual gratifications, are infinitely worse than none.

    Author: David Brainerd

    Author: Frederick W. Robertson

Our wishes are the true touchstone of our estate; such as we wish to be we are. Worldly hearts affect earthly things; spiritual, divine. We cannot better know what we are than by what we would be.

    Author: Joseph Hall

The true man of God is heartsick, grieved at the worldliness of the Church, grieved at the toleration of sin in the Church, grieved at the prayerlessness in the Church. He is disturbed that the corporate prayer of the Church no longer pulls down the strongholds of the devil.

    Author: Leonard Ravenhill

Nothing exposes religion more to the reproach of its enemies than the worldliness and hard-heartedness of its professors.

    Author: Matthew Henry

For the multitude of worldly friends profiteth not, nor may strong helpers anything avail, nor wise counselors give profitable counsel, nor the cunning of doctors give consolation, nor riches deliver in time of need, nor a secret place to defend, if Thou, Lord, do not assist, help, comfort, counsel, inform, and defend.

    Author: Thomas a Kempis

May the things of this world so lose their power over us that we do not in the slightest wish to be "worldly"; nay, we even delight in not remaining "in the world."

    Author: Watchman Nee

Death is not more certainly a separation of our souls from our bodies than the Christian life is a separation of our souls from worldly tempers, vain indulgences, and unnecessary cares.

    Author: William Law

How much of these destructive elements, esteemed by men, does the devil bring into the church, until all the high, unworldly and holy aims, and heavenly objects of the church are retired and forgotten?

    Author: E.M. Bounds

The social gospelers are so obsessed with this-worldliness that other-worldliness (is) laughed at, and next-worldliness is rated low. It is as though it were sinful to talk about heaven on earth. Thank God, there is still a band of us pilgrims who have gotten out, who are going on, and who are happy to be getting home.
