'Of the World' in the Bible
Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
For consider, brethren, who ye are that have been called; not many wise men after the fashion of the world, not many mighty, not many noble;
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
which wisdom none of the rulers of the world knew. For had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
you are still unspiritual. For so long as jealousy and strife continue among you, can it be denied that you are unspiritual and are living and acting like mere men of the world?
For when some one says, "I belong to Paul," and another says, "I belong to Apollos," is not this the way men of the world speak?
Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.
I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people??10 not that you are to have nothing whatever to do with the immoral people of the world, any more than with its greedy and grasping people or idolaters, for then you would have to leave the world altogether.
Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
Is it not certain that the saints will be the judges of the world? if then the world will be judged by you, are you unable to give a decision about the smallest things?
and those who make use of the world as [if they] do not make full use of [it]. For the present form of this world is passing away.
But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.
There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
Yet, in being judged by the Lord, we are undergoing discipline, so that we may not have judgment passed upon us with the rest of the world.
If in this present life we have a *hope* resting on Christ, and nothing more, we are more to be pitied than all the rest of the world.
Then [i.e., at Christ's return] the end [of the world] will occur, when He will turn over the kingdom to God, the Father, after He has abolished all [hostile] dominion, authority and power.
