I found myself to be truly saddened by news of the passing of Chuck Colson. He was a wonderful man who stood for the things of God in a country going to hell. I will miss his insightful commentary, but know that he fought the good fight and is now with our Lord. To me this is a notice given of the possible passing of a point of no return in this country, as we are losing the voices that stood for sanity and Godliness.
In a Feb. 3 video message, he saw the larger issue of the threat to religious liberty.
“We have come to the point – I say this very soberly – when if there isn’t a dramatic change in circumstances, we as Christians may well be called upon to stand in civil disobedience against the actions of our own government,” Colson said in the video.
“That would break my heart as a former Marine captain, loving my country. But I love my God more.”
Colson emphasized that his mind was already made up: “I will stand for the Lord, regardless of what my state tells me.”
