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.

Lord's Day July 1 2012

Preached on hell again yesterday morning - from Luke 16 this time. It's not at all easy. I felt physically sick at one point. Decent number despite our recent losses and several away.
Numbers 15:1-31 in the evening. Much smaller congregation. Found this sermon by Charles Simeon helpful in preparation. It's sermon 159 on page 74.
Completely forgot my reading glasses both times but managed.
