Chuck Colson

Chuck Colson has passed away. The media, of course, begins with the statement that he was Nixon’s “hatchet man” in the Watergate era. The media may call him a “hatchet man,” but then they typically do a hatchet job, depicting Colson as “reinventing” himself.

Colson was transformed by the power of Jesus Christ. He then turned to help others see the power of transformation. He was instrumental in reaching back into prisons and dedicated his life to prison reform and seeing prisoners truly set free by the gospel of Jesus Christ.

He would never call himself a prophet, but I believe the American church lost a true prophetic voice with his passing.

Eternal memory.
