No, not if the events described jive with history.

One approaches deathbed conversion stories with hesitation, however, for two reasons:
1) They always involve perceived enemies of Christianity [e.g.: Paine, Voltaire, Darwin, Luther, and Stalin (in one manner)]. In other words, these deathbed stories allow the Christian audience to say a post-mortem "gottcha,"
2) As far as my reading goes, these tales are only reported by religious writers. As religious conversion is a major paradigm shift, one should find these happenings reported by secular biographers. They are not.

Neither is the full tale of Rasputin's final hours recounted by secular historians, even though there exist two, highly detailed, independent accounts of what happened.  Secular historians are as biased as any other brand of historian.

Malachi Martin says Luther died blaspheming.  After reading this thread, I see therefore that there are at least three distinct accounts of Luther's last actions.

You Credo should be able to admit that every single one of them fits the man in question.  Luther was an anti-saint, a destroyer.  But we don't need these apparently unconfirmed accounts of the manner of his death to realize that, do we...
