Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
The tower of Babel was man's rebellious answer to God, an insistence upon making his own way to heaven. Whether or not the tower was a hedge against another flood, one thing is clear. Man wanted nothing to do with God. And so God confused their tongues, preventing them from even trying. So let us all repent of our fallenness, our wicked hearts who have the same inclination. And let us turn to the word of the Gospel that sounded forth on Pentecost, in all the languages. God in his mercy reached out and preached to the dispersed nations, calling them back. Let us embrace this Gospel, and leave off building our own towers to heaven. Sermon for the Vigil of Pentecost.
