Posted on 02/03/2011 4:46:28 PM PST by blasater1960
Christopher Hitchens was interviewed in his home about his life and work following a diagnosis of esophageal cancer. He authored over a dozen books including his recent memoir, Hitch-22. Other titles include, God Is Not Great, The Trial of Henry Kissinger, The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice, and Thomas Jefferson: Author of America. He was a contributing editor for the Atlantic Monthly magazine and a columnist for Vanity Fair magazine, where he has been writing articles about his diagnosis in the summer 2010 of stage four esophageal cancer.
God have mercy on his soul. He made a career out of trying to rob people of meaning, and of trying to rob the world of it’s Savior. A life not well lived.
I just hope Hitchens takes his red Dr Denton’s and his pitchfork when he goes.
Where he’s going he’ll no doubt need ‘em.
I watched this last week.
It really sounds like Hitchens doesn’t have much longer.
His father died from the same thing.
Yeah he talked about it.
Brian Lamb asked some really personal questions I was surprised to hear him ask.
Christopher Hitchens may be pompous and arrogant, but I’m praying for the man. It would be wonderful to see him accept Christ before his death (which may be soon). He does have a keen intellect, but will he be wise (and humble) enough to admit he needs Jesus?
Keep praying, folks!
We can pray for him to come to know God while there is still time. No one is beyond hope until they’re dead.
Like all of us, he will stand before G-d and give an accounting. It is not up to us to sit in judgement, but I suspect he might be sobered for the first time in his life. May the G-d of Abraham, Issac and Jacob have mercy on his soul.
20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualitieshis eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Romans 1:20
May The Holy Spirit find brother Christopher and show him the way that leads to life eternal.
I’m sorry, but mercy is Christ. I pray for God’s justice to be swift and holy. I know some won’t like it but mercy is in Christ. If he rejects Christ, then he’s accepted his fate.
What do you think the chances are of Hitch having a deathbed `Come to Jesus’ moment?
I’d have to say slim to none, with slim at about .0001%.
What do you think the chances are of Hitch having a deathbed `Come to Jesus moment?
Perhaps Christ is the Mercy of G-d, for He is the Son of G-d and sits on the Mercy Seat. Perhaps G-d knows whom he sheep are, even as he saved the murderer that was crucified next to him. Therefore, may G-d have mercy on his soul.
He spent some time in his book on Thomas Paine and `Common Sense’ talking about Paine’s death, and how some minister broke in and tried to get him to repent, etc., and Paine had just enough strength left to have him tossed out.
He was speaking in front of Freepers sometime in DC.
Been to too many and I forget when.
I remember I gave him a shot with his sandals on making his presentation.
Some Freeper girls were googling all over him. I thought it disgusting.
His conversation with me was way over my head, NOT.
This guy has no clue of real life business.
To this day I have no idea how he got money for speaking his stick. What dribble.
I do wish him well in getting well. If only to save his soul.
How sad to be reduced to praying that there is no God.
Hitchens has said that no matter what,even if he cries out for God on his deathbed, to ignore him. THAT is arrogance.
Reminds me of lyrics from an old song from back in the 70s.
Happily for Hitchens God wouldn't.
I hope he beats the odds.
God saved the thief on the cross because that thief asked for Christ to remember him when He came into His kingdom. He acknowledged that while he and the other thief were being executed for crimes that they had committed, Christ was innocent. That’s repentance if ever there was any and repentance of sins is one of the cornerstones of our salvation.
