Last week a friend sent along a column Dr. Falwell wrote praising Lee Roberson who died a few days ago at the age of 97. The two men came from different generations and their ministries reflected those differences. Dr. Roberson never got into politics and Jerry couldn’t stay out of it. I heard someone say that Jerry Falwell’s influence had waned in recent years. That’s probably true and inevitable and it doesn’t matter. You have to have it in order to lose it, and Jerry Falwell had it and still had a lot of it until he finally entered heaven a few hours ago. At breakfast this morning he was fine and then he was gone. Just like that. He didn’t drift away quietly into the night. He was going full speed ahead when the Lord called him home. Well done, Dr. Falwell. Rest in peace.
