What is worldliness?


that system of values, in any given age,

which has at its center 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 great plausibility to what is morally wrong and, for that reason, makes what is wrong seem normal.


—David F. Wells, Losing Our Virtue: Why the Church Must Recover Its Moral Vision (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1999), 4.
