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 May 31 2020

Again this last Sunday we had a "visiting preacher" in the morning from the seminary, pre-recorded with me leading. This was Eduardo Lemos. See here. He was able to record audio visually at the seminary although the vision froze towards the end, which was a shame. He preached well on Genesis 1. We preceded that with our usual singing together from 10 am (with "Sunday School" the day before). In the evening we zoomed again and I preached on Joshua 3. We are also trying to hear from the workers we support elsewhere. This last week it was Andrzej Kempczyński who is church planting in Legionowo near Warsaw. They are already gathering again and it was good to hear of an upcoming baptism and other encouragements. We hope to hear from Robin Asgher in West London next Sunday, when I hope to look at Joshua 4. Links are on our website here.
