    What a beautiful précis of ONE PERSON's LIFE who touched and unified so many across the faith "lines." Note: Mr. Colson's time of death within the Divine Mercy Hour! Godspeed, Chuck!

    "Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May chuck colson rest in peace in your Divine Will." Amen.

    With heartfelt prayers for "Max." (http://emilycolson.com/)

    Nice tribute, Deacon Keith! Thanks for sharing.

    In the 1970s, the news media and Congress were ALL OVER the Watergate scandal.
    They both relentlessly attacked anyone involved.

    This was the crime of the century and they were not going to sit idlely by and do nothing.
    All that "hoopla" for a simple "breakin"...illegal? Yes, but clearly not the crime of the century.

    Obama occupies the Presidency "illegally" with clear and convincing evidence along with his fraudulent birth certificate cover-up.

    This is the crime of the century and beyond.

    AND nothing from the news media or Congress.

    No official vetting of Obama’s credentials has been done – not by the 50 secretaries of state who oversee elections, not by the Federal Elections Commission that administers the nation’s elections laws, not by the Electoral College, not by any judge in America, not by Congress, not by anyone.

    Wow. Thank you so much for writing this. You are so right and we need more men like Mr. Colson. I love what you said, "the work of this giant among Christian apologists is only just beginning." Thank you, dear Catholic brother. From your Southern Baptist sister, and lovingly in Christ.

    Dear Deacon...I will offer some prayers for Mr. Colson. I must apologize to the producers of We Will Not Comply You Tube Video and Catholic.org for accusing them of using Gary Wills in the video. It was obvious not Mr. Wills, the famous dissenter, but rather Mr. Colson...a man not far from the Kingdom.

    The article reminded me of another gentleman named Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl (18 May 1872 – 2 February Russell, OM, FRS 1970) was a British philosopher, logician,
    mathematician, historian, and social critic. At various points in his life he considered himself a liberal, a socialist, and a pacifist, but he also admitted that he had never been any of these in any profound sense.
    He was born in Monmouthshire, into one of the most prominent aristocratic families in Britain.
    There are some very stark differences however in how Bertrand Arthur William Russell personally viewed religion, yet he along with many others were against Hitler and even the Vietnam War, etc.
    This is one of the moments I can absolutely thank my religion for enabling me to realize the differences historically and be more like Paul...or even Thomas.

    Christians recognize Chuck Colson as a good and decent, humane and committed servant of Christ. I pray for Mr. Colson's recovery, and for his family and congregation to have the love and support needed to get through this difficult time.

    I first heard Mr. Colson speak in 1985 when I was 20 years old and have been a huge fan since then. He definately was used for God's glory over many years. I pray that his last moments here on Earth include moments of consciousness so he can say good bye to his family. While so many believers will indeed miss him here on Earth, they all know that there will be a big celebration in Heaven as he enters the Lord's Kingdom. You have done mighty things for God's kingdom Mr. Colson.
