Bonhoeffer uses a similar phrase 'worldly Christianity'. It's J Gresham Machen that I want to line up most closely with. See his Christianity and culture here. Having done commentaries on Proverbs (Heavenly Wisdom) and Song of Songs (Heavenly Love), a matching title for Ecclesiastes would be Heavenly Worldliness. For my stance on worldliness, see 3 posts here.

I don't want to go on with this thread much more but I thought that anyone who'd never seen one of these might find it interesting. I believe my old pastor used to use this very product. I think it's for pipes.

I have enjoyed Presby mixture now and again ever since a fellow elder gave me some one Christmas. When Baldwin was PM a Glasgow C of S minister introduced him to an unnamed mixture he used.Baldwin gave it its present name.

Thanks Graham. I'd always wondered how it got its name.
