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.

Lord's Day June 10 2018

Delightful day yesterday. We had good congregations again with an Afghani visitor with her young son and an old friend who grew up in the church joining us in the morning. We also had lunch together which went well. One of the deacons also invited us over for tea. Our leaving Seminary students briefly spokeaboiut the future. In the monring I preached that winderful tet in Ephesians 2:8-10 and in the evening we were again in Matthew.looking at Chapter 19:13-15.
