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 February 24 2013

It was a very cold last Sunday of February, yesterday, and there were  a few away with illnesses and for other reasons. In the morning we completed our studies in 2 Peter looking at that interesting verse about Peter finding some things in Paul hard to understand and the closing verses. In the evening we completed the fascinating section in Numbers about Balaam and his oracles. We were quite low in the evening but there were still about 15 of us, which is good in these days when some have had to abandon evening services. It'll be good to get into March and, hopefully, some Spring weather at last. I hope we'll be starting on a new book too.
