Some people think that worldliness is limited to external behavior – the people we associate with, the places we go, the activates we enjoy.
Worldliness is also internal because it begins in the heart and is characterized by three attitudes: (1) the lust for physical pleasure – preoccupation with gratifying physical desires; (2) the lust for everything we see – craving and accumulating things, bowing to the god of materialism; and (3) pride in our possessions – obsession with one’s status or importance.
