Franklin Graham, Ken Ham Respond to Death of Atheist Stephen Hawking

Franklin Graham, Ken Ham Respond to Death of Atheist Stephen Hawking

Christopher Benek

The Rev. Christopher Benek is the associate pastor of Family Ministries and Mission at First Presbyterian Church in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Christopher Benek, pastor and leading clergy expert on artificial intelligence and global emerging tech and theology, commended the British scientist for his advanced thinking.

"Stephen Hawking will definitely be missed. He was one of the great minds in human history. But Hawking wasn't right about everything. His perpetuation of escapism theology in culture was based in fear — not in love, redemption and renewal."

In a recent op-ed published on CP, Benek said, "Hawking may be an extraordinary theoretical physicist and cosmologist, but he is a misguided futurist. The Earth is not going to be destroyed in 100 — or even a 1,000 — years as he predicts. Instead, it is going to be remade into a new creation."
