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.

Tyndale NT - from Matthew 1

Ioseph as soon as he awoke out of sleep, did as the angel of the Lord bade him, and took his wife unto him, and knew her not, till she had brought forth her first son, and called his name Iesus.
