Well Known Atheist, Writer Christopher Hitchens Dead At 62

Christopher Hitchens

Well known atheist and writer Christopher Hitchens is dead at the young age of 62 years. Hitchens, known to be a constant smoker, died of esophageal cancer.

Hitchen’s thoughts on religion as violent and irrational, among other things, are expressed in his book God Is Not Great. In a debate with William Lane Craig, Hitchens remarked “there are no good reasons to believe that God exists, and there are good reasons to believe that there is no God.”

To be honest, I have to say that Christopher Hitchens is right  with this expressed thought on religion. Millions upon millions of people have been murdered in wars and acts of   violence and hatred throughout history in the name of religion and God, right up to the present time.

However, the one problem with religion that Hitchens had in his search for truth and God was that he did not know the difference between an organized religion or religious belief  system and a relationship with His creator Jesus Christ. At least as far as I could determine from what I have read about him. Therein lies the big difference.

If a man lives in this world and knows Jesus Christ, he has gained everything, but if a man leaves this world without knowing Jesus Christ, he has missed his reason for existing,  and  has lost everything.

In any event, Christopher Hitchen's life did matter to God. John 3:16. God is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.  2 Peter 3:9.  Through his years on this earth, the Lord saw to it that many Christian people were brought into Hitchen’s path in his  journey for truth. He had a chance to learn and accept the truth and chose his own path to follow.

I cannot help but think Christopher Hitchens knows the difference now. Hebrews 9:27

    Dear Toni,

    Thank you for your comment. I have monitored Finnish (and Swedish & Norwegian) media over a decade, I've seen its censorship and propaganda.

    I'll keep in touch later,

    Ari from Finland

  3. This breaks my heart. You are right, there is a huge difference between religion and a relationship with Jesus Christ. There will be many religious people accompanying this man in hell, but there will be no one there who had a relationship with Christ. Such a sad waste of life :(
