Russell Moore commenting on the death of Christopher Hitchens:
"I don’t know about Christopher Hitchens, about what happened in those
last moments, but I do know that, if he had embraced it, the gospel
would be enough for him. I know that because it’s enough for me, and I’m
as deserving of hell as he is.
Hell is real and judgment is certain. The gospel comes with a warning
that it will one day be too late. But, as long as there is breath, it
is not yet too late. Perhaps Christopher Hitchens, like so many before
him, persisted in his rebellion to the horror of the very end. But maybe
not. Maybe he stopped his polemics and cried out, “Jesus, remember me
when you come into your kingdom.”
I don’t know. But I do know that the gospel offers forgiveness and
mercy right to the edge of death’s door. And I know that the kingdom of
God is made up of ex-thieves, and ex-murderers, and ex-atheists like us."
