    Worldliness quotes by:    

The joy of Christ and the joy of the world cannot consist together. A heart delighted with worldly joy cannot feel the consolations of the Spirit; the one of these destroys the other: but in sanctified trouble, the comforts of God's word are felt and perceived in a most sensible manner.

    Author: Abraham Wright

Anxious care rests on a basis of heathen worldly-mindedness, and of heathen misunderstanding of the character of God.

    Author: Alexander MacLaren

A true revival means nothing less than a revolution, casting out the spirit of worldliness and selfishness, and making God and His love triumph in the heart and life.

    Author: Andrew Murray

Christianity teacheth me that what I charitably give alive, I carry with me dead; and experience teacheth me that what I leave behind, I lose. I will carry that treasure with me by giving it, which the worldling loseth by keeping it; so, while his corpse shall carry nothing but a winding cloth to his grave, I shall be richer under the earth than I was above it.

Worldliness is what makes sin look normal in any age and righteousness seem odd.

Every Christian ought to vote in every election on every issue! Don't leave it to the worldly crowd. Vote without fail!

    Author: Shelton Smith

Be careful, dear friends, that you do not misrepresent God yourselves. You who murmur; you who say that God deals hardly with you, you give God an ill character; when you look so melancholy, worldlings say, "The religion of Jesus is intolerable;" and so you stain the honor of God.

    Author: Charles Spurgeon
    Source: A Jealous God, Sermon 502, March 29, 1863.

Worldliness is any preoccupation with or interest in the temporal system of life that places anything perishable before that which is eternal.

    Author: John MacArthur

I used to try to reconcile creature comforts and spiritual consolations. We cannot hold the world in one hand and Christ in the other. We cannot serve God and mammon.

    Author: William Tiptaft

If Christ were always in the heart, we should not let the sand of the wilderness in, not that we should never have any, but if we have the oil of His presence, the sand cannot stick and clog our feet.

    Author: G.V. Wigram

Wherever the flesh appears, there is something that Satan can touch, and unless we judge ourselves, can turn to grief of heart in us and dishonour to God.

    Author: G.V. Wigram

As believers, we are cut off from all thought of futures, from making plans in connection with this world. I shall not be ready for Christ to come if I am settled down in Sodom and trying to heap up its dross. Whatever duty the Lord has meant us to be doing, each one should be found at when He comes.

    Author: G.V. Wigram
