Today, at the age of 73, Rev. Jerry Falwell passed away. That leaves only Pat Robertson to endure the scorn of left-wing critics who lambaste those of us dubbed “fundamentalists.” As Pat seems to have gone off the deep end in recent years (his repeatedly strange prophecies) Jerry was really the lightning rod for criticism from the religious and secular left. Agree with him or not, he stuck to his guns, and stood firm in his faith.
While there is much we disagreed on, he was a good man. No doubt he would be sad to know he didn’t live to see the glorious return of Christ. But soon enough, in the twinkling of an eye, he will be before his Lord and Savior.
