preached to save those who believe.
1 Corinthians 1:27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame
the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.

things--and the things that are not--to nullify the things that are,
1 Corinthians 2:12 We have not received the spirit of the world but the

1 Corinthians 7:33 But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this
world--how he can please his wife--
1 Corinthians 7:34 and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or

Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the
affairs of this world--how she can please her husband.

you, in the holiness and sincerity that are from God. We have done so not

as I expect to be toward some people who think that we live by the standards
of this world.
2 Corinthians 10:3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as
the world does.

too will boast.

prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus
Christ, might be given to those who believe.

basic principles of the world.

Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

holy and blameless in his sight. In love
Ephesians 2:2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this
world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at
work in those who are disobedient.
Ephesians 2:12 remember that at that time you were separate from Christ,
excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the
promise, without hope and without God in the world.
Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against
the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and
against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

bearing fruit and growing, just as it has been doing among you since the day
you heard it and understood God's grace in all its truth.
Colossians 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and
deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic
principles of this world rather than on Christ.
Colossians 2:20 Since you died with Christ to the basic principles of this
world, why, as though you still belonged to it, do you submit to its rules:
1 Timothy 1:15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance:
Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners--of whom I am the worst.

appeared in a body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was
preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in

nothing out of it.

has gone to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia, and Titus to Dalmatia.

Hebrews 4:3 Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said, "So I declared on oath in my anger, 'They shall never enter my rest.'" And yet
his work has been finished since the creation of the world.

creation of the world. But now he has appeared once for all at the end of the
ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself.

fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and
became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.
Hebrews 11:38 the world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts
and mountains, and in caves and holes in the ground.
James 1:27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is
this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself
from being polluted by the world.
James 2:5 Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor
in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he
promised those who love him?
James 3:6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the
body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire,
and is itself set on fire by hell.
