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 August 3 2016

It was good to be at the meeting tonight, We were ten all told. After a hymn based on the opening stanza of Psalm 119 and a prayer we looked at the opening two verses of the psalm. I didn't really feel I'd got hold of the material well enough, may be I was too brief, but in the prayer time someone prayed it through very well, and that was an encouragement. As ever tons of things to pray about. We cover quite a lot I suppose.
