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.
â€œWe have come to the point â€“ I say this very soberly â€“ when if there isnâ€™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,â€ Colson said in the video.
â€œThat would break my heart as a former Marine captain, loving my country. But I love my God more.â€
Colson emphasized that his mind was already made up: â€œI will stand for the Lord, regardless of what my state tells me.â€
