Lessons for Christians from Christopher Hitchens?

Christopher Hitchens, the man who energized the New Atheists movement, died on December 15th. Here's a well written article by Dr. Al Mohler where he outlines 5 key lessons that Christians can learn from Mr. Hitchens.

Here's an excerpt:
In Letters to a Young Contrarian, published in 2001, Hitchens had written that he was “not even an atheist so much as I am an antitheist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful.” Hitchens did not want to be confused with amateur atheists or with “the generalized agnosticism of our culture.” No, he was the enemy of religious faith and any claim of belief in God.
