Christopher Hitchins...

I looked online at a news source this morning to discover that Christopher Hitchins has died. Sad news...I had become more aware of who he was from watching the movie "Collision" which is an ongoing debate between Hitchins, an atheist, and Doug Wilson, a Reformed Christian Believer. I followed some of Hitchins interviews when he spoke about his absolute refusal to believe that there was/is a God, nor a need to believe in the need to be saved from sins. He was a thinker, and he was a wordsmith, and had so many communicative gifts. A sad day in some respects...

Lest we judge too quickly this hardened heart...we are all Hitchins' at heart...unless God opens our eyes to the Christ (John 6:44), we would all go that way...a stark reminder of the grace of God in election...and in salvation.
