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 17 2013

It's half term here so things were a bit different with 6 or 7 regulars out but others with us because it was half term. Congregations are always variable with us. We carried on with 2 Peter 3 in the morning, on the Second Coming and the holiness it should engender in us. I hope to complete the book next Lord's Day. We will also finish our consecutive readings from Joshua next week so we need to think carefully about what comes next. Sunday evening after communion we were back in Numbers. We looked at the first two oracles of Balaam. So encouraging again.
