Charles Spurgeon said this about worldliness in the church:

I believe that one reason why the church of God at this present time has so little influence over the world is because the world has so much influence over the church.

He further said:

Put your finger on any prosperous page in the Church’s history, and I will find a little marginal note reading thus: “In this age men could readily see where the church began and where the world ended.” Never were there good times when the church and the world were joined in marriage with one another. The more the Church is distinct from the world in her acts and in her maxims, the more true is her testimony for Christ, and the more potent is her witness against sin.

As cited in Worldliness, by C.J. Mahaney, p.23.
