Death of an American Icon

While many Christians on the Far Right may not agree, Sen. Ted Kennedy was a Icon in the scheme of American politics. and while I only agreed with about half of what he stood for, he still was a strong and powerful voice in the American conscience.

His strength and his weakness was his true concern for the majority of the people and the the protection of those who could not defend themselves against the powerful. His benevolence was his legacy and he lived to make right the law. To many this view of righteousness appeared to be “Leftist” and to those who lived to gain power over the weak, he was a threat. But his politics reflected his religious beliefs as well as his personal convictions, he was true unto himself.

But I believe that he truly believed that he was doing what was righteous and good for all Americans. Because of that, I can mourn his loss even though I did not agree with much of his convictions. America will miss him. So I pray for his family and for America at the death of a great man. May his soul rest in peace and may he be received in Heaven to join his brothers to the praising of their Savior, Jesus.

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My Word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgement, but have passed from death into Life.”


24 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. (ESV)
