If the Bible says To cleanse yourself from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit...What is filthiness of the flesh?

When I got saved I began to get convictions..Many people in church today that once had convictions don't no longer have convictions.They act and live like the world.You no longer can tell the world from the church.The church is worldly.They have forsaken the old time gospel way.Jesus is the same as he was when we went to the altar.If you were convicted of something when you got saved you better believe it is the same now and as real as it was as the night you went to the altar.Back when I got in church people had fosaken all and followed Jesus.They gave their bodies as a living sacrifice.They fasted and prayed and gave up the lust of the flesh and strived to mortify the DEEDS of the flesh.God didn't have to tell me to quit smoking my heart told me it was wrong.Jesus didn't have to tell me not to dress worldly or like a Jezebel,I didn't want to look like one.Because my heart desired the things of God.People believes the scriptures about grace and has forgotten it also says "Do we sin because grace abounds? GOD FORBID." I thank God for his Grace,If it wasn't for his Grace we would all have no choice but to go to everlasting darkness.But I feel like what we have inside will also shine on the outside.I realize we are not perfect yet. But how hard are you striving to be like him.The Bible says to come out from among the world and be a seperate people...From the way it looks to me the church is not seperated from the world.How would someone know you were a Christian if you were standing in a crowd?Many confess with their mouths but their hearts are far from Jesus.
