This week (Sunday, June 22nd) the irreverent commedian George Carlin died of heart failure. He wasn't just a funny man with irreverent jokes. He was demonstrably a man with a black heart. He never knew "heart restoration." He died of physical heart failure. I am all but sure that he died of spiritual heart failure as well. His own words condemn him. His story is the story of a life badly lived and sadly died. His words confirm it.
The internet says, "If you love to laugh, you’ll be crying today. George Carlin was one of the few people who could make ponytails on guys look cool." George Carlin was no role model to follow. He was a man on a road to nowhere or worse.
George Carlin needed what he never had - heart restoration. He needed Jesus! I know he didn't want Jesus. He clearly said so. But it's not rocket science to know that George Carlin needed Jesus. We all do! We are all as badly broken as George Carlin was. For us, there is still hope for heart restoration. For George Carlin it's over!
