Our Lord forgives and makes us whole again..
Eternal Peace, you have earned it..
RIP Chuck You were an ok guy!
Mr. Colson was a true servant of the living God. He lived out his faith day in and day out. Many were blessed by his genuine touch and his writings.
My only regret was to read the comment section at the end of the CBS story. How awful most of those people were and it only reinforces the scriptural teaching of faith being foolishness to the unbeliever. These people that posted are vile and wicked in desperate need of a relationship with Christ. I’m sure if Mr. Colson would have met any of them on the street or in need, he would have given them a big hug and told them he loved them and so does God. That’s the kind of guy we lost and heaven gained.
I am certain Mr. Colson has now heard the words of his Savior, “Well done thou good and faithful servant”.
Perfectly stated. I met Chuck Colson years ago at a dinner for my daughter's school, and felt privileged to be in his presence. What always struck me was his love for "the least of these" - people who could never do anything for him. His servant's heart is reflected in one of Prison Fellowship Ministries' least known charities: cleaning up and restoring crime scenes in private homes.
I thank God for the redeemed life of Chuck Colson, and I look forward to seeing him again.
He has met Jesus face to face!!! Imagine that....
RIP, Mr. Colson. I had the pleasure of meeting him briefly at one of R.C. Sproul’s Ligonier conferences many years ago.
His Christian radio spots were amazing. Heaven’s gain is our loss.
Chuck Colson became a wonderful Christian. His perspective was generally a wonderful insight amidst a bunch of opinions.
RIP, Brother Colson.
Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Lord.
RIP, Chuck...you are missed already.
A good man, did good work for America.
I note how the headlines have changed from “former Watergate”, to “former Nixon aide”..
I guess there has been some criticism of the media...
The gospel will also be shared...
I read one of his books about the prison ministry. Seemed like a good man.
If articles with headlines like this, or for that matter any anti Conservative/Christian article, is able to be posted under, I sure hope freepers take every opportunity to put their insights down for all the world to see and learn by.
