Mark Judge asks the question,”Could Christopher Hitchens become a Christian?” He explores this possibility in his latest article for the Daily Caller. To those who don’t know, Hitchens is a brilliant author and a potent commentator of our times. He was once the darling of the left, but in recent years became enamored of the neo-conservative view of liberation. Ironically named, Christopher is an atheist; who has written large against religion, especially the three Abrahamic versions. Hitchens has spent the last two years fighting to stay alive as esophageal cancer has weakened him.
Of course, the Daily Caller article only hints at some sort of epiphany due to Hitch’s rebuttal of Nietzsche‘s observation that “Whatever doesn’t kill me makes me stronger.” Mark Judge is hoping that Hitchens will come to understand that the love he feels and experiences during this ordeal are not apart from God.
I wouldn’t get my hopes up for Hitch to make some last-minute appeal to Christ. But that does not mean I would ever stop praying for him.
