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.

SEMI-FINALS!!!

Wales 3 Belgium 1!! Not just a win but an amazing win. Da iawn Cymru! Portugal next!
Does this win make us the best team in the world?

Hello Gary

That must make England the best team in the world because England beat Wales, the team who beat Belgium! Do you remember? ☺

I think that's a fair point, Karl. Losing to England is the fly in the ointment. I also think Chris Colman was right to say it would not have been enough simply to have beaten England. PS If you're looking for other crumbs of comfort Wales' three goals were all scored by English born men.
