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 9 2017

We were not a large number for the last midweek meeting before my holiday break - four church officers, two of their wives, two Korean friends and two others. We looked once again at the subject of heaven and the six negatives of Revelation 21, 22 - no sea, no tears or death, no temple, no wickedness, no night and no more curse. Everyone except the Koreans prayed after the Bible Study. There's alays a lot to pray for. I love the midweek meeting. I only wish more would come along. In some ways heaven will be like a midweek meeting - prayer considering the Bible story, etc. No-one ill be missing then.
