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.

Heroes

We had one of my heroes with us last night - Brian Ellis of Manila. It was great just to have an update on the work of Cubao Reformed Baptist church and the wider work. I was gratified to see such a  good turn out. Men like Brian and Keith Underhill in Kenya who have just gone and given their lives to establishing Reformed Bapatist churches are the giants of our day - real ordinary men but men used by God in wonderful ways.
