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 June 1 2016

There were 12 of us on Wednesday for our midweek meeting looking at 2 Timothy 2:16-19 and spending time in prayer. We were not short of matters to pray for. The needs seem perhaps greater than ever. We do look to answers to these prayers as we seek to avoid godless chatter and take in the comfort and challenge of the words The Lord knows who are his and Everyone who  calls on the name of the Lord must turn from wickedness.
