My First PBT
OK, so here I go.
See Eckardt. See Eckardt blog. He does not run. He blogs slowly. He is a new blogger.
But he is a quick learner, so he expecteth that he shall succeed in this endeavor, at least to some modest degree, over time, that is.
I have to figure out how this mess works first, and then I'll be spewing forth my odd musings and ponderings at random.
For now, I'll post the first profound thought of my blog, which is actually from my mother:
Nothing ever really matters very much.
Now this pbt (profound blot thought) is meant in part to smoke out the Pietists out there who will rail against the idea, saying Wait a minute, doesn't GOD matter, huh?? To which I would not even bother to reply that it isn't what that pbt really means, since that ought to go without saying. What it means is that for those who are in Christ, there is life and salvation, and therefore all things work together for good to them that love Him, etc. And if you really believed that, you would realize that this is quite a good pbt, actually, because it means everything will work itself out. So there.
Take heart. Calm yourself. It's going to be ok in the end. Nothing ever really matters very much.
