George Carlin’s Death

I did not watch George Carlin’s stand-up routines.  I did not know him.  We had very little in common.  But I still am saddened at his death.

Apparently, he had very little use for God.  I am hopeful that he accepted God’s gracious gift of salvation before his passing.  He was loved by his Creator, whether he knew it or not. 

I am not only grieved about his death, I am also grieved at the response of many of my fellow Christians.  Reading statements like, “Good riddance” and “In his act he mocked God–I wonder if he’ll tell God a few jokes before he goes to Hell” makes me understand even more why many reject Christianity.  As Ghandi said, “I like your Christ, but I do not like your Christians.  Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” 

Regardless of Carlin’s faith or lack thereof, he was still a human being that God loved.  Because of that, I mourn his passing and pray for his family. 

May God have mercy on those who believe it is their responsiblity to condemn anyone else to Hell.
