I’m not a Christian. I’m not religious at all. But…

I do love me some Dolly Parton. And somehow I never heard this song before.

I am familiar with the Gospel story, and always kind of related to the part about Peter. He really believed in himself, and in his faith in what Jesus had taught him. In fact he was kind of loudmouthed about it. But when it came to the immediate threat of death he denied Jesus to his face. And his shame broke his heart.

Imagine how it would feel to learn that your original faith had been right all along, and that the one you had betrayed forgave you without reservation.

What wouldn’t you do then?

Hat tip to Borepatch.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.
