Darwin and Lady Hope

Have you heard the story of Charles Darwin’s deathbed conversion?

Defending our faith Chris Sinkinson

In his final months, he was visited at home by a Lady Hope, who later described the encounter. One summer afternoon at his home, restricted to his bedroom by ill health, he declared his faith in Jesus and confessed of his theory: ‘I was a young man with unformed ideas. I threw out queries, suggestions … People made a religion of them’. Therefore, preachers will tell us, we should share Darwin’s mature opinion of his unformed ideas, reject evolution and embrace Christ.
