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 July 20 2016

We were a good number again last week with 12 or 13 present (two left before the prayer time and one came only for the prayer time). It was good to have two regulars back and two or three visitors. We went back to 2 Timothy 3:16, 17 and looked at two related subjects - the settling of the New testament canon and Calvin on the Inward witness of the Spirit. I used John Piper's book on Scripture A Peculiar glory which I have been enjoying dipping into. You could probably do more n this but I think we'll leave it there and  do something else next week. We had a good time of prayer.
