Christopher Hitchens dies at age 62

British-American writer Christopher Hitchens— the combative and caustic critic, intellectual, atheist and self-defined "conservative Marxist" — died Thursday at the age of 62 at a Texas hospital.

The cause of death was pneumonia, a complication of oesophageal cancer. He died Thursday night at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, surrounded by family and friends.

To those who urged Hitchens to embrace religion once he knew he was dying, he wrote:

"Suppose there were groups of secularists at hospitals who went round the terminally ill and urged them to adopt atheism: 'Don't be a mug all your life. Make your last days the best ones.' People might suppose this was in poor taste." ...

Actually there are no atheists anywhere! The Apostle Paul tells us in Romans 1:18-22 that everyone believes - it is just that some spend their lives suppressing that truth to the point they begin to believe their own lie.

There are no atheists in hell!

Charles Spurgeon, "Last Things" No. 667.

How will unbelief look in the flames of hell?

There are no infidels anywhere but on earth!
There are none in heaven, and there are none in hell.

Atheism is a strange thing. Even the devils never fell
into that vice, for "the devils believe and tremble."

And there are some of the devil's children that have
gone beyond their father in sin, but how will it look
when they are forever lost?

When God's foot crushes them, they
will not be able to doubt his existence!

When he tears them in pieces and there is none to
deliver, then their sophistical syllogisms, their empty
logic, their brags and bravadoes, will be of no avail!

Oh, that they had been wise and had not darkened
their foolish hearts, but had turned unto the living God!

Huh! JPW, I entirely agree with that statement.

I didn't say what Protestant church did I? When the New Testament talks so much about churches, why do you consider them unimportant. In two places it gives the requirement about elders, which the Romish Church doesn't qualify.

So, let's say, hypothetically, you belong to the Mafia in Chicago, are we then to suppose you are a model citizen if you refuse to remove yourself from that organization?

Come out of the Catholic Church because Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No..

You are guilty of aiding and abetting a false church, and by the way, so are some Lutheran ones so you are committing a crime against Christ. No matter, what type of Catholic you say you are, q.v., Who is a Roman Catholic?

John Y. is 100% USDA approved Evangelical.

He puts 98% of them to shame as they can't articulate 1/4 of what he knows of the Bible, Reformation history and customized Protestant theology.

He's more Evangelical (and conservative) than Billy Graham.

How could God say to him, "Not into my Heaven" when he's totally saved?

Dear John Yurich of USA,

I just wanted to point out that Christ is only Christ when He is both Lord and Savior. If He is not Lord, He is not Savior. When seeking a fellowship, my greatest concern is that the covenant with Christ is taught rightly---Christ being the cornerstone. Good day.

I have never stated that the RCC is entirely Christian. It has some unscriptural doctrines as well as scriptural doctrines. Therefore the RCC is partially Christian. I suppose you believe that the Lutheran Church is not Christian? The Bible is very specific that the only requirement for salvation is to become Born Again by having Jesus become ones Savior. Church membership in any church be it Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Mainline Protestant and Fundamentalist Protestant is totally superfluous to salvation and gaining entrance into Heaven. Jesus will not look upon church membership when deciding who and who will not enter Heaven. Jesus will only look at if someone received Him as their Savior.
Congratulations John, that's the 1000th time you have said that. You must have learnt it off by heart now.

You belong and support an anti-Christian church, if a person is a Christian he will make the Pilgrimage From Rome. The Romish Church worships Jesus and Mary, and... It's pathetic nonsense to call the Romish Church Christian, read the short Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses.

And no John, you can't be "carnal" Christian.

Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
Allowing the flesh to manifest itself is to resist the ministry of the Holy Spirit. For the believer to do so will result in a lack of growth and maturity. The natural, fleshly person is someone who never seems to give evidence of submitting to the Spirit irregardless of how sincere their profession of faith may seem....

Do you actually believe that when everybody stands before Jesus after passing away that church membership will enter the equation as to who will and will not gain entrance into Heaven? Nowhere in the Bible is church membersip equated with salvation and gaining entrance into Heaven. Jesus did not tell Nicodemus that church membership was required for salvation and gaining entrance into Heaven. And Romans 10:9-10 does not mention church membership as a requirement for salvation and entrance into Heaven. The Catholic Church is not a church of Satan because it worships Jesus as God. A church of Satan does not worship Jesus as God like the Mormon, Christian Science and JW religions who do not worship Jesus as God. If I adhere only to the scriptural RCC doctrines and only participate in the scriptural parts to the Mass then I am worshipping Jesus in spirit and in truth and am not denying Jesus.

I could never understand why people argue over this man's salvation,or lack of. Never found him very interesting either, same old stuff over again. Sure glad when we can stop talking about him and spend our thoughts on more pressing matters.

...and John Y, how often do I have to point out to you,

Matthew 7
16 "You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes, nor figs from thistles, are they?
17 "Even so, every good tree bears good fruit; but the bad tree bears bad fruit.
18 "A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.
19 "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20 "So then, you will know them by their fruits.
21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.
22 "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?'
23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'---NASB

You are practicing lawlessness, if you do not stop attending that house of Satan, you are denying Christ by attending it and participating in the Mass, The Mass - Miracle or Mendacity?.

A cynical person can't be saved on the deathbed.

Ah, John, Y., as I pointed out to you what is taught in the New Testament are the Five Solas either by the Word, or by logical conclusion, "Only Scripture," "Only Christ," "Only Grace," "Only Faith," and "To God Alone Be Glory".
"Only Christ," is an anathema to the Romish Church,
Matthew 14
6 Jesus said^ to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.
Doctrinal Smorgasbord? makes you heretic to both the Romish Church and to Christians. Do you think a deathbed confession and the last rites is going to save you? Don't believe it for a minute, the doors of Hell will open wide for you. You are already on the broad path.
How many times do I have to state this before you get it? I accept the Five Solas that you mentioned. Just because I do not belong to a Fundamentalist Protestant Church does not mean I am not saved. If I prayed to Jesus and asked Him to become my Personal Lord and Savior then I am saved irrespective if I still belong to the RCC. I reject and repudiate the majority of RCC doctrines. I don't believe that the last rites save. I believe that salvation comes by receiving Jesus as ones Personal Lord and Savior.

Are you seriously trying to suggest that one cannot be saved in their last moments? If so, Luke 23:43 beckons.

Ah, well, back to the article, there were two interesting interesting interviews with Mr. Hitchens on Au.B.C.,
. It is hard to feel sorry for his egotism and he did, Luke 12:19-21. In his life style he ignored, the Laws of Nature, which are the Laws of God.

Yes I guess I am a cafeteria Catholic who picks and chooses which Catholic teaching to reject and which Catholic teaching to adhere to. And when I get married I and my wife will not be using birth control as the Catholic teaching against the use of birth control is one of the Catholic doctrines that I believe is biblical.

Personal Lord and Saviour?

1. Personal: God saves individuals, not nations, therefore Christianity is personal.
2. Lord: Every Christian must receive Christ as Lord, and obey Christ as Lord, or he is a pseudo-Christian (like the anglicans!).
3. Saviour: Jesus means "Saviour". Christ Jesus came into the world to SAVE sinners.

However, the phrase is sometimes bandied about by those who know nothing of saving grace, nor spiritual enlightenment, nor conviction of sin, nor will they obey Jesus Christ, nor will they depart the antichrist church, and they imagine that reciting a simple "prayer" will see them safely in heaven. Maybe Johnny Y is one such.

But what is Christianity? It is a calling of God to certain sinners, at some point in their life. It is spiritual enlightenment, conviction that produces sorrow for sin and a desire to turn away from it. It is suddenly seeing the immense value of Christ's sacrifice for sin, and the power it has to bring me forgiveness, without any work on my part. It is to have the Holy Ghost reveal Christ in all his offices, that I may be awed and yet warmed, that I may come to love him more than any other thing in God's created universe.
