Last Saturday we had a conference at the chapel on health and wealth. I spoke on tithing and Robert Strivens spoke on the central theme of health and wealth. We were joined by Nigerian Akin Owalawale who was once on the inside of the movement and was able to share both experience and teaching. It was a good conference but we were only about twenty (about half and half church members and outsiders). We had hoped to attract people inside the prosperity movement itself but we seem to have failed in that. The messages are available on our church website (here)
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.
