Everything Sad is Going to… Keller @ Triple D’s

Imbi sent this quote to the kids and me this afternoon. It’s from Darryl Dash’s conversation with Tim Keller where Tim says,

The new heavens and new Earth are coming in which “everything sad is going to come untrue.”

Keller paraphrases Sam’s question to Gandalf in Tolkien’s Return of the King “is everything sad going to come untrue?” to which many have written, “Jesus replies, Yes!”

I take great comfort in Keller’s Tolkien paraphrase this day.

And in this other Tolkien quote that Imbi reminds her husband and children of, “Not all who wander are lost.” Good thing!

  1. … and those things which should never have been made shall be unmade.

    Ahh – and what a glorious time that will be!

  2. I had to look up the whole quote – “All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; renewed shall be the blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king.”

    Fantastic quote, “is everything sad going to come untrue?”. I think that line often since I heard him talk about that. Not just that sad things are over and done with , but they are “undone”, no longer true.
