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.

GBA 2012 02 Albania

We had an excellent presentation on Albania from Scotsman Will Niven at 5 pm. After giving a history of gospel work in Albania he spoke of
1. Unbiblical evangelism
2. Biblical illiteracy
3. Problems in leadership
4. The missionary enterprise (until 97 more missionaries per head than anywhere else)
5. Spiritual gullibility
1. A new openness to the gospel. People are searching for something worth having.
2. Openness in the media
3. A rising generation of men seeking to serve and sympathetic to the Reformed faith
1. Raising up godly leaders
2. Lack of older age group
His great desire is that the work should not be a one generation thing
