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 May 13 2015

We were down to single figures for the first time in a while last night. People are busy with their studies and things I guess. Anyway we completed the final part of Philippians 3 thinking about role models positive and negative and closing with a reminder of our heavenly citizenship and the return of the Lord and all that follows that. We looked at the latest GBM Prayer Waves video (on the work of the Firths in Latvia) and prayed about that and various other matters. Plenty of prayers. Paul wept over the false teachers. If you see and understand what is happening today, you too will weep.
