Anyone who thinks McVeigh was a Christian, please raise your hand
Any thoughts that McVeigh had a 'death bed' conversion were pretty much extinguished by his choice of the 'last words' statement he handed to the warden as he headed to the gallows (or gas chamber). His hand written note was Henley's poem, Invictus. Which ends:
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
Proper words for an atheist who is heading out to eternity. Not for a Christian who has put his all on the Lord Jesus Christ - the anchor of our soul - and the solid Rock in whose cleft we are stayed.
I guess he found out the truth the moment of his execution.
