By now we all know of the tragic death of the likeable Christopher Hitchens. It is a sad day for those who were close to him, and our thoughts and prayers will be with them.
There are two ways you and I can meet God. The first is to repent and trust alone in Jesus. The second way is to wait until you pass on. The old adage of death “He went to meet his Maker” is true.
On hearing of Mr. Hitchens passing, Richard Dawkins sent out a tweet acknowledging that God exists:
“Christopher Hitchens, finest orator of our time, fellow horseman, valiant fighter against all tyrants including God.”
Of course, none of us know what Mr. Hitchens did in his last moments of time. He may have turned from his sins and trusted in Jesus. God only knows.
Whatever the case, never forget that acknowledging the existence of God doesn’t mean an entrance into Heaven, but (as the Bible so clearly teaches), repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, does.
