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 18 2016

So there we were back to it last night to consider the Scriptures and to pray - yet another variation on the number 12 or so. Why people come or don't come I'm never really sure. Anyway we tackled a big text, 2 Timothy 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. I hope I handled it correctly. It certainly was a challenge to me and I hope to others as well. Then (nearly) everyone prayed.
