The Rev. Jerry Falwell has died after being found unconscious in his office by an aide. Despite his flaws and intemperance and sometimes zealotry, Falwell seemed to me to have service of God and the best interests of the United States at heart in what he did, including the founding of the Moral Majority. And for that he was soundly mocked and derided by the cultural elites of our nation.
I suppose there was a lot we would not have in common, but I suspect in the essentials we did. Now that he sees the full vision of God’s glory and the Truth he beheld only partially on this earth, may he receive God’s mercy in full measure as he faces his judgment.
