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.

This evening Sinclair Ferguson took us through the wonderful closing verses of Romans 8. Because of the gospel, he reminded us,
1. There is no opposition that can prevail against the Christian
(Who delivered up Jesus to die? Not Judas, for money; not Pilate, for fear; not Jews, for envy; but the Father, for love! - Octavius Winslow)
2. There is no accusation that can stick against the Christian
3. There is no accusation that can stand against the Christian
4. There is no separation from the love of God
Hallelujah! He is my Saviour.
Great stuff.
