Unfortunately, most Christians do not understand the battle they are fighting, the enemy that they face, or the means God has provided to overcome the temptations and deception of this present world system. ~ Chip Ingram
World System quotes by Chip Ingram
As for the world system of evil, we are to be separated from it. This then is our problem: to associate with and love those who are involved in the world without being contaminated, influenced, or swayed by them. This distinction can be achieved only by a close walk with Christ, by constant prayer, and by seeking the Holy Spirit's leadership every hour of the day. We are in the world, but the world is not to be in us. ~ Billy Graham
World System quotes by Billy Graham
What worlds are there herein? I'll tell you. In these seas of fragrant waters, numerous as atoms in unspeakably many buddha-fields, rest an equal number of world systems. Each world system also contains an equal number of worlds. Those world systems in the ocean of worlds have various resting places, various shapes and forms, various substances and essences, various locations, various entryways, various adornments, various boundaries, various alignments, various similarities, and various powers of maintenance. ~ Thomas Cleary
World System quotes by Thomas Cleary
Capitalism has grown into a world system of colonial oppression and of the financial strangulation of the overwhelming majority of the population of the world by a handful of "advanced" countries. And this "booty" is shared between two or ~ Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
World System quotes by Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
Who is he that shall control me? Why may I not speak and write and think with entire freedom? What am I to the universe, or, the universe, what is it to me? Who hath forged the chains of wrong and right, of Opinion and Custom? And must I wear them? I say to the universe, Mighty One! thou art not my mother. Return to chaos if thou wilt. I shall still
exist. I live. If I owe my being, it is to a destiny greater than thine. Star by star, world by world, system by system shall be crushed,-but I shall live. ~ Samuel A. Schreiner Jr.
World System quotes by Samuel A. Schreiner Jr.
Temptation can be defined as an inducement to do evil. Three powerful forces work together to ruin a believer's character and witness: Satan, the world system, and our own lustful "flesh" tendencies. ~ Charles Stanley
World System quotes by Charles Stanley
The powers of financial capitalism had a far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. ~ Carroll Quigley
World System quotes by Carroll Quigley
God put a secret art into the forces of Nature so as to enable it to fashion itself out of chaos into a perfect world system. ~ Immanuel Kant
World System quotes by Immanuel Kant
The world system enslaves through jobs ~ Sunday Adelaja
World System quotes by Sunday Adelaja
Polarization (and Trumpism) is in itself a kind of political crisis. But all of this would be fine in the long run,
if the stakes weren't so high and the time frames so narrow. As a world-system, we really don't have the time
for Trumpism and the like. Global warming and the rapid changes pertaining to the internet age won't wait. We are
entering a time of unprecedented transformation and we are in dire need of politics that are progressive - in the
sense that they anticipate and productively respond to the upcoming multidimensional crisis - revolution. ~ Hanzi Freinacht
World System quotes by Hanzi Freinacht
Those who think that the wisest way to groom a child for spiritual maturity is to isolate him from the evil, corrupted world system or airbrush his childhood environment so much that it exposes only him to the good and never teaches him how to process the bad (or the counterfeit) will set a child up for a life of mediocrity at best and spiritual annihilation at worst. ~ Tim Kimmel
World System quotes by Tim Kimmel
When the struggle seems to be drifting definitely towards a world social democracy, there may still be very great delays and disappointments before it becomes an efficient and beneficent world system. Countless people ... will hate the New World Order and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to evaluate its promise, we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people. ~ H.G.Wells
World System quotes by H.G.Wells
The apostle Paul urges Christians everywhere in all ages to be nonconformists as far as the world system is concerned. We are not to conform. A true Christian, living an obedient life, is a constant rebuke to those who accept the
moral standards of this world. ~ Billy Graham
World System quotes by Billy Graham
Prana is the aspect of mobility, dynamism, and cohesion, while consciousness is the aspect of cognition and the capacity for reflective thinking. So according to the Guhyasamaja tantra, when a world system comes into being, we are witnessing the play of this energy and consciousness reality. ~ Dalai Lama XIV
World System quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
It was easy to laugh at Fascism when we imagined that it was based on hysterical nationalism, because it seemed obvious that the Fascist states, each regarding itself as the chosen people and patriotic contra mundum, would clash with one another. But nothing of the kind is happening. Fascism is now an international movement, which means not only that the Fascist nations can combine for purposes of loot, but that they are groping, perhaps only half consciously as yet, towards a world-system. For the vision of the totalitarian state there is being substituted the vision of the totalitarian world. ~ George Orwell
World System quotes by George Orwell
The world system is coming to the structural crisis ~ Immanuel Wallerstein
World System quotes by Immanuel Wallerstein
You can detect Satan's schemes and overcome his world system. ~ Adrian Rogers
World System quotes by Adrian Rogers
We cannot and must not sit back and let the anti-biblical world system determine the prevailing values of our day. ~ Bill Bright
World System quotes by Bill Bright
We ought to be listening to see who the world-system wants to devalue and degrade, most often first with words, so that we can know for whom we should be speaking and standing. ~ Russell D. Moore
World System quotes by Russell D. Moore
Prayer that works is prayer that makes a difference, contemplation that turns into action, on behalf of peace and justice in a troubled and unjust world system. Prayer is energy, the energy of love and transformative power. It is given to us to use for the good of all creation. In prayer God gives us the fuel of life, and asks us to live it. ~ Margaret Silf
World System quotes by Margaret Silf
Most economic histories of the "world" not only omit most extra-European production and exchange (even most of that outside West Europe or even northwest Europe); they neglect the participation of the productive and exchange activities of extra-European countries in the European, not to say world, process of accumulation and development. Moreover, they disregard the part that these productive and exchange relations played in the developing world system. ~ Andre Gunder Frank
World System quotes by Andre Gunder Frank
For the decline of capitalism to continue, that is to say, no revolutionary alternative is required, and certainly no masterplan of a better society displacing capitalism. Contemporary capitalism is vanishing on its own, collapsing from internal contradictions, and not least as a result of having vanquished its enemies - who, as noted, have often rescued capitalism from itself by forcing it to assume a new form. What comes after capitalism in its final crisis, now underway, is, I suggest, not socialism or some other defined social order, but a lasting interregnum - no new world system equilibrium a la Wallerstein, but a prolonged period of social entropy or disorder (and precisely for this reason a period of uncertainy and indeterminacy). It is an interesting problem for sociological theory whether and how a society can turn for a significant length of time into less than a society, a post-social society as it were, or a society lite, until it may or may not recover and again to become a society in the full meaning of the term. ~ Wolfgang Streeck
World System quotes by Wolfgang Streeck
Evil is like a pathogen that enters a system, be it an individual, nation-state, or world-system, and exploits that system, knocking it off balance. ~ Paul Levy
World System quotes by Paul Levy
Mr. Chairman, when the Fed was passed, the people of these United States did not perceive that a world system was being set up here ... and that this country was to supply the financial power to an international superstate. ~ Louis Thomas McFadden
World System quotes by Louis Thomas McFadden
Wars between states and people seem to have existed under all historical systems for as long as we have some recorded evidence. War is quite clearly not a phenomenon particular to the modern world-system. On the other hand, once again the technological achievements of capitalist civilization serve as much ill as good. One bomb in Hiroshima killed more people than whole wars in pre-modern times. Alexander the Great in his whole sweep of the Middle East could not compare in destructiveness to the impact of the Gulf War on Iraq and Kuwait. ~ Immanuel Wallerstein
World System quotes by Immanuel Wallerstein
Jesus told His disciples that the "world," meaning the world system, the political and social order organized apart from God, will despise Christians. ~ Billy Graham
World System quotes by Billy Graham
Actually, each mental image of the world system is and remains limited, objectively by the historical situation and subjectively by its author's physical and mental constitution. ~ Friedrich Engels
World System quotes by Friedrich Engels
The world system is employment ~ Sunday Adelaja
World System quotes by Sunday Adelaja
Globalization, which attempts to amalgamate every local, regional, and national economy into a single world system, requires homogenizing locally adapted forms of agriculture, replacing them with an industrial system-centrally managed, pesticide-intensive, one-crop production for export-designed to deliver a narrow range of transportable foods to the world market. ~ Helena Norberg-Hodge
World System quotes by Helena Norberg-Hodge
Half the people who studied botany were hippies who thought they could return to some natural world system. Somehow feeding seven billion people through pure gathering. ~ Andy Weir
World System quotes by Andy Weir
The American fast food diet and the meat eating habits of the wealthy around the world support a world food system that diverts food resources from the hungry. A diet higher in whole grains and legumes and lower in beef and other meat is not just healthier for ourselves but also contributes to changing the world system that feeds some people and leaves others hungry. ~ Walden Bello
World System quotes by Walden Bello
The nature of the new world system was not so different from the old. It was for the moment more stable, but a reasonable forecast would be that Africa in particular had a century of border wars ahead of it. ~ Daniel Patrick Moynihan
World System quotes by Daniel Patrick Moynihan
…there is room enough for a world between a lilac and a wall. ~ Michael Pollan
World System quotes by Michael Pollan
The NHL is the best in the world, it has the best players. I love the NHL. ~ Alexander Ovechkin
World System quotes by Alexander Ovechkin
The U.S. dropped more high explosives on Vietnam than the Allies used on Germany and Japan together in the Second World War. ~ Nick Davies
World System quotes by Nick Davies
What, then, would the effect be if we were to dive even more deeply into Jesus's teaching and life and work? What if we were to be so immersed in his promises and summonses, his counsels and encouragements, that they dominated our inner life, capturing our imagination, and simply bubbled out spontaneously when we faced some challenge? How would we live if we instinctively, almost unconsciously, knew Jesus's mind and heart regarding things that confronted us? When you received criticism, you would never be crushed, because Jesus's love and acceptance of you is so deeply "in there." When you gave criticism, you would be gentle and patient, because your whole inner world would be saturated by a sense of Jesus's loving patience and gentleness with you. ~ Timothy Keller
World System quotes by Timothy Keller
The bigots, whether they are of the Islamist variety or the anti-Muslim variety, essentially agree on a few matters. One is their belief that Islam itself - not Islamism - is a supremacist ideology that is here to take over the world; another is that, therefore, Muslims and non-Muslims can never live equally and peacefully together, but must separate into religiously defined entities. ~ Sam Harris
World System quotes by Sam Harris
Shall the water not remember Ember
my hand's slow gesture, tracing above of
its mirror my half-imaginary airy
portrait? My only belonging longing;
is my beauty, which I take ache

whose gratitude I treasure Is your

World System quotes by Fred Chappell
You can give the same recipe to ten cooks, and some make it come alive, and some make a flat souffle. A system doesn't guarantee anything. ~ Chuck Close
World System quotes by Chuck Close
I don't usually cook." "And the world thanks you," he murmured ~ D.B. Reynolds
World System quotes by D.B. Reynolds
The redwood is the glory of the Coast Range. It extends along the western slope, in a nearly continuous belt about ten miles wide, from beyond the Oregon boundary to the south of Santa Cruz, a distance of nearly four hundred miles, and in massive, sustained grandeur and closeness of growth surpasses all the other timber woods of the world. ~ John Muir
World System quotes by John Muir
How wrong is it for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself? ~ Anais Nin
World System quotes by Anais Nin
I have to find Tobias, but I'll come back after I do and sit with you, okay?"
She finally looks at me, and her knee goes still. "They didn't tell you?"
My stomach clenches with fear. "Tell me what."
"Tobias was arrested," she says quietly. "I saw him siting with the invaders right before I came in here. Some people saw him at the control room before the attack
they say he was disabling the alarm system."
There is a sad look in her eyes, like she pities me. But I already knew what Tobias did.
"Where are they?" I say.
I need to talk to him. And I know what I need to say. ~ Veronica Roth
World System quotes by Veronica Roth
They were in the world and not of it
not because they were saints, but in a different way: because they were artists. The integrity of an artist lifts a man above the level of the world without delivering him from it. ~ Thomas Merton
World System quotes by Thomas Merton
Laughter is good medicine for the soul. Our world is desperately in need of more medicine. ~ Jim Stovall
World System quotes by Jim Stovall
I don't know much about anything in this world but I do know how to read the book written in his eyes. ~ Tahereh Mafi
World System quotes by Tahereh Mafi
We need a positive economic agenda that invests in the innovation and growth that will create jobs for middle class families and ensure that America remains the world leader. ~ Rick Larsen
World System quotes by Rick Larsen
I don't think we can ignore the Modern Movement. But I wouldn't have minded at all if it hadn't happened. I think the world would be a much nicer place. ~ Quinlan Terry
World System quotes by Quinlan Terry
We were all ruled by the studio system. I signed a contract for seven years. ~ Leslie Caron
World System quotes by Leslie Caron
Set your mind on a definite goal and observe how quickly the world stands aside to let you pass. ~ Napoleon Hill
World System quotes by Napoleon Hill
Some of the traits that make you a great entrepreneur also work against you. Examining data of high-scoring people, we find that oftentimes the world frustrates them: They're super-smart, they're super-capable, and the work quality of their peers is vastly inferior to what they can achieve on their own. ~ Adeo Ressi
World System quotes by Adeo Ressi
Pure science is a myth: Both mathematical theoreticians like Albert Einstein and practical crackpots like Henry Ford dealt with different aspects of the same world. ~ Edward Abbey
World System quotes by Edward Abbey
It is what it is and it's okay. I'll be okay, you'll be okay, and the world will keep turning. ~ Aris Whittier
World System quotes by Aris Whittier
Is there an option C? Take a vacation somewhere sunny, and drink a lot of rum until the world unfucks itself? ~ Devon Monk
World System quotes by Devon Monk
There are promises of protection in the Word of Wisdom. The Lord's word of wisdom commanding abstinence from a worldly "king's portion" of tobacco, tea and coffee, and alcoholic beverages that are habit-forming, and which counsels the simple diet of fruits, grains, and vegetables in season, with meats used sparingly, has been given you as a revelation of God's great law of health. It stands today as a challenge to a world surfeited with things condemned as unclean and unfit for the human body.

If you have faith as the youthful Daniel and his brethren and purpose in your hearts that you will not defile yourselves with "king's meat and wine," even though you may be two thousand miles east of the Suez Canal, your faith will have the reward of hidden treasures of knowledge, of strong bodies that can "run and not be weary and walk and not faint." If by faith in this great law, you refrain from the use of food and drink harmful to your bodies, you will not become a ready prey to scourges that shall sweep the land, as in the days of the people of Moses in Egypt, bringing death to every household that has not heeded the commandments of God. ~ Harold B. Lee
World System quotes by Harold B. Lee
The perfect orchestration of the symphony of life is one of the Creator's greatest and most beautiful miracles. ~ Suzy Kassem
World System quotes by Suzy Kassem
Living in a world that is valued only as gain, an ever-expanding world-as-frontier that has no worth of its own, no fullness of its own, you live in danger of losing your own worth to yourself. That's when you begin to listen to the voices from the other side, and to ask questions of failure and the dark. ~ Ursula K. Le Guin
World System quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
Our normal expectations about reality are created by a social consensus. We are taught how to see and understand the world. The trick of socialization is to convince us that the descriptions we agree upon define the limits of the real world. What we call reality is only one way of seeing the world, a way that is supported by social consensus. ~ Carlos Castaneda
World System quotes by Carlos Castaneda
If you wear smiles like armor-
If you put on personalities like clothes-
If you can't show the world all that you are-
This book is for you. ~ Jodi Meadows
World System quotes by Jodi Meadows
In America, we have so many movies and so much media about the Islamic world, the sub-continental world, but it's not a conversation, it's a monologue. It's always from one point of view. 'If we don't tell our own stories, no one will tell them' is my mantra. ~ Mira Nair
World System quotes by Mira Nair
So, be slow if you must, but let
the heart still play its true part.
Love still as once you loved, deeply
and without patience. Let God and the world
know you are grateful.That the gift has been given. ~ Mary Oliver
World System quotes by Mary Oliver
The butterflies were performing circus tricks now, flying through hoops of fire. Lexi had read about infatuation once. Some writer had doused the romantic notion of winged insects. He'd said the funny feeling was simply the motion of common sense fleeing the body. It made more sense, in a world where few things did. Lexi smiled, reveling in the feeling. ~ Angela Panayotopulos
World System quotes by Angela Panayotopulos
Above all, the translation of books into digital formats means the destruction of boundaries. Bound, printed texts are discrete objects: immutable, individual, lendable, cut off from the world. ~ Tom Chatfield
World System quotes by Tom Chatfield
I think that everybody in the world, whatever colour or creed, has a jerk like JR in his or her family somewhere. Whether it is a father, uncle, cousin or brother, everybody can identify with JR and that certainly had something to do with the success of 'Dallas.' ~ Larry Hagman
World System quotes by Larry Hagman
Love is like chains of unbreakable steel. Love is like iron weights, heavier than the world. Love can crush just as surely as it can lift up. Everything else wilts before it. ~ G. Norman Lippert
World System quotes by G. Norman Lippert
We will soon create intelligences greater than our own ... When this happens, human history will have reached a kind of singularity, an intellectual transition as impenetrable as the knotted space-time at the center of a black hole, and the world will pass far beyond our understanding. ~ Vernor Vinge
World System quotes by Vernor Vinge
I am not a Bible-believing Christian in the fullest sense simply by believing the right doctrines, but as I live in practice in this supernatural world. ~ Francis A. Schaeffer
World System quotes by Francis A. Schaeffer
No passion in the world is equal to the passion to alter someone else's draft. ~ H.G.Wells
