Jerry Falwell was found unconscious in his office earlier this morning.
He was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 12:40pm
Eastern Time. His beliefs were polarizing for both Christians and
non-Christians. Whether you agreed with his theology or not does not
matter. He was a man who sought to follow Jesus as he believed right.
He is now with the Lord, along with believers of past ages now asleep,
awaiting the day when Christ returns. It is the day we all long for. It
is the day of resurrection. It is the day of great hope for those who,
through repentance and faith, belong to Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ.
May God move in us all to work out our salvation with fear and
trembling, to daily repent of our sin, to ever trust in Christ alone
for our eternal hope, and find our names written in the Lamb’s book of
Lord have mercy.
Christ have mercy.
In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
