It was good to be back at the midweek meeting after two weeks absence. We went back to Philippians again for a brief look at 3:1-3 and the matter of rejoicing while watching out for false teachers. Someone asked me about how we go on rejoicing as believers It is not easy. A good time of prayer followed. There were 14 present. I hope people were encouraged. We finished a little earlier than we often do. because we don't start until 8 pm it can be quite late if we are not careful.
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.
