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 June 21 2015

Back in Childs Hill yesterday. We looked at Psalm 107 in the morning. A number of people weren't really familiar with this late psalm that is full of good and encouraging things so I was glad that we tackled it. In the evening after communion we were in the Sermon on the Mount and that very encouraging section about asking, seeking and knocking. I was in quite a jolly mood for some reason and there were a good number present, as was the case in the morning. It's still very few, however. one hopes that the message preached gets to others in other ways as people hopefully talk about what they have heard.
