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 Wednesday February 22 2017

We weren't a bad number last Wednesday, though we were two or three down for various reasons. We are really into the thick of it now with a long section on the sin offering, Leviticus 4:1-5:13. It probably was a little long and not as coherent as on week one - I think it is often like that. We also got on to the subject of apostasy, which is always difficult. Once we get through the next two bits we will have covered all the offerings so I am not too despondent. Although the prayer time was a little short it was very fluent.
