The similar phrase 'Worldly Christianity' is one used by Bonhoeffer. 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 February 24 2019

Sorry I forgot to do a preview last week. Numbers were quite low in the evening again but we crawled up to 10. It was a pity there were no real outsiders. It was better in the morning with people from the area joining us-  a lady who we've been in contact with for a while, a Latvian lady there for the first time who found us online (I forgot to mention the Iranian first timer last week - not back this week), a Nigerian lady and a Portuguese one who both come from time to time, a tattooed man who'd never been before, etc. Two difficult passages - the second half of Acts 18 and the next but of Matthew 24. The joys of systematic expository preaching.
