Chuck Colson Has Died: Rest in the Peace of the Lord Whom You Served Courageously Comments

Chuck Colson, one of the great voices of the entire Christian community - Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox - has gone home to the Lord whom he served with such beauty and fidelity. He was eighty years old. Chuck Colson was a dynamically orthodox Christian leader, an historic figure who was chosen by God to help lead the recovery of Western Culture. He was an apostle of Christian Unity and a man of prophetic courage. May he rest ... Continue Reading

    "Anybody who preaches love and togetherness over hate and divisiveness is a good person. The world needs more people like Mr.Chuck Colson!"

    These two sentences are in contradiction. Or perhaps you mean you need bad people?

    Nonetheless, we all feel sadness at the death of any member of the human family.

    Always looked forward to hearing Break Point w/ Chuck Colson. My protestant friends always accused him of being Catholic. To our Holy Mother's arms & care we send our brother.

    One who preaches the Truth, the truth of Christ, Non-Compromising in nature, covering all aspects of life, in the Apostolic Faith & Tradition, weather it Pleases or Hurts for the Truth of Man today hurts more than it pleases & the difference becoming greater by the day to the said view of Chuck Colson is a pointer to a Catholic Evangelical alignment to the Faith, the Apostolic one as the basis, which incidentally is the basis of the seven Churches of Jesus Christ stated in the Revelations. Prayers for Chuck.

    I've had the privilege of working with people in Prison Fellowship and The Colson Center for nearly thirty years. Chuck Colson has always been willing to take the harder road when necessary in order to stand for Truth. He never succumbed to the temptation that befell many evangelical leaders in that era - vying for political power and influence. Rather, he used reason, skillful dialogue and a respect for other voices in the public square to accomplish God's work. Above all, he insisted on civility in relationships and as a ministry mindset. He never worried about the approval of his peers, religious, political or otherwise. Nor was he a 'loose cannon' promoting his own agenda. His concern was seeing the culture reconciled to Christ and he was uniquely qualified for that calling. When I learned the latest earlier today I was caught off-guard. I fully expected that he'd make a slow but hopefully complete recovery. But whatever the outcome, his work will continue and he will be remembered as a true convert, a faithful laborer and a person of balance, reason and integrity. God bless him and his family.
