Good definition for those who've always wondered:what on earth is worldliness and what does leaving the world and not being of the world mean?


Worldliness is that system of values, in any given age, which has at its centre our fallen human perspective, which displaces God and his truth from the world, and which makes sin look normal and righteousness seem strange. It thus gives plausibility to what is morally wrong, and for that reason, makes what is wrong seem normal.
