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 May 5 2013

As usual we began the month with communion. I then preached again from 1 Corinthians 3, this time on the church as a building. In the evening we considered the subject of giving as we looked at the rest of Numbers 31. We had decent numbers morning and evening (when we get about half as many as in the morning). Some were missing but there was a new family from eastern Europe there who I hope will join us. We had a nice gathering back here as we often do between services. It is a privilege to preach the Word.
