Greetings True Christians,
Many of you are probably wondering why Christopher Hitchens did not make our list of “People you will probably meet in hell.” The answer is quite simple, actually. Christopher Hitchens turned to Christ on his deathbed, and is now in heaven with Jesus, Peter, Paul, Noah, Mary, and all the angels. Why did Hitchens repent? The answer is actually quite simple. Much like a man that can see a train bearing down upon him as it comes close to him and is about to kill him, Hitchens was able to finally see hell bearing down upon his immortal soul as it became almost unavoidable. Somewhere, likely on his deathbed, Hitchens called out to Jesus for salvation. Jesus embraced this lost sheep with open arms, and led him straight to heaven, where he is in Paradise as we speak. Why do we know this is true, you ask? First, this is true because there were witnesses to his event. On a more personal note, I know this is true because I prayed hard about it, and asked the Holy Spirit for guidance. The Holy Spirit led me on a search for evidence. This evidence shows that Hitchens had the makings of a true Christian, and confirms the Holy Spirit’s message to me. I’ll share the evidence with you here.
First, Hitchens repulsively rejected God in a public setting. This is for a very good reason. Hitchens made bank by pulling the wool over the eyes of heathen atheists and deluding them into believing that he was an atheist. In his heart of hearts, Christopher always knew that Christ was real. Was Christopher Hitchens a closet Christian? This I cannot say, but fear of Christianity is much like homophobia. Those with the most vocal and blatant rejections to the belief system or practice at hand are most often the ones that secretly buy into it. Now I’m not saying that American politician Sam Brownback is homosexual, but honestly, look at his name! Hitchens was most likely a Christian in some form throughout his life. Christopher saw the good life that God gave him, and must have been very grateful. Ever wonder why CHRIST is the first segment of CHRISTopher? This is probably coincidence, but I know for a fact that Christopher Hitchens died a Christian.
Many of you do not realize that Christopher Hitchens was actually a good friend of the Christian community. Don’t believe me? This article preaches truth. He was close friends with Pastor Rick Warren. As a friend of Christopher’s, Warren knew him better than any of us. Let us consider Warren’s statement (from article linked previously):
“Pastor Rick Warren, founder of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., tweeted, “My friend Christopher Hitchens has died. I loved & prayed for him constantly & grieve his loss. He knows the Truth now.”
That’s right. Christopher Hitchens knows the Truth now. This is because he knows Christ, and also because he repented on his deathbed. Christopher Hitchens embraced Jesus, and Rick Warren knows all about it. Perhaps Warren was there when Christopher called out to Jesus for salvation. Atheist-turned-Christian Lee Strobel even said about Hitchens “I was among many who shared Christ with him.” Perhaps Everybody Pray for Hitchens Day had an impact after all!
The point, good Christian friends, is that we can today rejoice in the power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and in His glorious ability to save the sinners and unbelievers if only they open their minds up to Him, the Prince of Peace. Christopher Hitchens opened his mind to Jesus, and Jesus saved him. Jesus can save all of us, friends, if we just open our hearts and mind to Him. Repent, accept Christ, and join Christopher Hitchens in heaven.
Yours in Christ,
