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 April 26 2015

We started again with a bitesize theology class - conversion this time. I then preached from 1 Corinthians 15:33-49 and the nature of our resurrection bodies. We were a little sparse with a few away for various reasons. There was a newcomer, however, who we hope will join us, an unexpected visitor and a man in need turned up once again towards the end. In the evening I preached quite a short sermon from the beginning of Matthew 6 on how we give to the needy. The congregation was not too bad. Prior to the evening meeting we had another prayer meeting for the work among the children, currently in abeyance. I took the above shot on the way home as the sun set.
