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 December 16 2015

I forgot to say that we had our meeting on Wednesday as usual with a decent number present though one or two were missing. We looked again at subjects around the three Rs - Revelation, Redemption and Regeneration. The week before we looked at regeneration and evangelism and this week we came on to assurance and sanctification. We got to those from the fact that, like regeneration, these are works of the Spirit that follow on from his initial work of regeneration. That still leaves me with two subjects to tackle next time, hopefully. The prayer time was fine too.
