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.

Midweek Meeting February 11 2015

Numbers were down just a little but we had another good time of prayer and we looked at the next bit of Philippians 2, that is 14-16a, which includes one of the hardest verses in the Bible - Do everything without complaining (or grumbling) or arguing! It is surprising what an emphasis Paul puts on it. As it is something of a national pastime several of us felt quite convicted. Nearly everyone prayed. What a great thing a prayer meeting is!
