Stephen Hawking: A Tragic End
As you all know by now, Stephen Hawking passed away this week. Unless something changed in his final hours, this is a tragedy. You see, unless something changed, Stephen Hawking made the biggest, and most terrifying discovery of his life this week. Stephen Hawking discovered that the afterlife is actually real, and that Hell awaits for anyone who does not accept Christ.
It is no doubt that Hawking had a brilliant mind in many ways. I can't even begin (or pretend) to understand the fields that he worked in or how they are relevant to our daily lives.
But all of that brilliance doesn't matter. He missed the biggest and most important aspects of life.
- God is real.
- We are sinners destined for eternal damnation.
- Christ died for our sins.
- We can have a relationship with Christ and live with him in Heaven when we leave this world.
Stephen Hawking missed all of that. Mocked it. Said it was a "fairy tale." Unfortunately, unless something changed and I hope it did, this fairy tale is now his eternal nightmare.
May this ever be a reminder that our first and foremost job is to spread the Gospel.
