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 February 17 2016

We were a select few who gathered on Wednesday, a combination of colds, holidays and traffic jams having scythed down our numbers. This select few included the Principal of the LTS and a Moldovan working in his third language and having nor previous knowledge of evangelical teaching. Mixed ability, whahey! We pressed on with 2 Timothy, nevertheless, and almost reached the end of the first chapter, focusing on 2 Timothy 1:13, 14 and making two broad points - that we need to follow and guard the pattern of apostolic teaching we have in Scripture. Everyone prayed in the prayer time, which is always good. A blessing to be there!
