'Worldly' in the Bible
The master praised the dishonest servant manager for being so clever, because worldly people are more clever than enlightened people in dealing with their own.
Brothers, I couldn't talk to you as spiritual people but as worldly people, as mere infants in the Messiah.
That's because you are still worldly. As long as there is jealousy and quarreling among you, you are worldly and living by human standards, aren't you?
Their destiny is destruction, their god is their belly, and their glory is in their shame. Their minds are set on worldly things.
So put to death your worldly impulses: sexual sin, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed (which is idolatry).
It trains us to renounce ungodly living and worldly passions so that we might live sensible, honest, and godly lives in the present age
That kind of wisdom does not come from above. No, it is worldly, self-centered, and demonic.
For everything that is in the world the desire for fleshly gratification, the desire for possessions, and worldly arrogance is not from the Father but is from the world.
