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 May 17 2017

There were 15 of us on Wednesday! Had someone told them we were going back to Leviticus? Actually, what it was partly was four visitors - a couple from the west country up in London for the day, an old member back visiting her parents and an Iranian lady with limited English living in the area checking us out. Having said that more could have been there but the rain and whatever kept them away. Leviticus 8 is the ordination of Aaron and his sons. Parallels can be made to Christ and to his people. We had a good prayer session again.
