Was wir vom verstorbenen Atheisten Hitchens lernen können

In den letzten Tagen habe ich im Blog von Albert Mohler gelesen. Er äussert sich zu vielen kontroversen Themen. So schrieb er einen tollen Aufsatz als Nachruf zu dem an Krebs verstorbenen Christopher Hitchens. Wir Christen können in mehrfacher Weise von ihm lernen:

  • Hitchens understood the power of ideas, and he never left a field of intellectual combat without giving his best.
  • Hitchens committed his life to the production of words, believing that the printed and spoken word can change the world.
  • Hitchens was a man of passion and personal intensity, and he made friends across ideological boundaries.
  • Hitchens did not hide behind intellectual scorn and he did not fear the open exchange of ideas.
  • Hitchens revealed the danger of cultural Christianity and exposure to tepid, lifeless, superficial Christian teaching.
