Jerry Falwell has Died

May 15, 2007

Big news today as it is being reported that Reverend Jerry Falwell has died. I have no doubt that he is now with our Lord and Savior. Our prayers and thoughts should go out to his family and friends.

Although I was quite harsh on him in my book (For God's Sake Shut Up!: Lessons for Christians on How to Speak Effectively and When to Remain Silent ), I still had hope that he could become a more positive public figure for Christians. My hope and prayer now is that the next generation that arises to take his place will be much more careful and less polarizing with their words.
