Ken Pulliam a former evangelical Christian turned agnostic or the such has died (you can read his story here), and yet his blog lives on. At least until the posts which he has written stops auto-posting. His latest one questions whether or not Adam and Eve had freewill. To be honest, I haven’t read much of Ken’s work, but I am sure he will be missed. What disgusts me however, is the comment left by a ‘Christian’ blogger on that latest post. Rhology, who is a militant anti-whatever he is not, it seems, left a commet which reads,
Goodbye Dr Pulliam. Your pitiful arguments against Christianity will be missed. I pity you greatly.
As a Christian, I believe that one of the greatest things to happen to my faith is the interaction with those who so strongly challenge it, and the more so, with those so hurt by it, destroyed by it, or those who simply see no value in it. People in some way like Dr. Ken Pulliam.
People like Rhology are those who needed Pulliam the most. But, they also need more importantly, the love of the Christ Whom they claim to serve. I do not pity Dr. Pulliam; I pity Rhology.
